start menu

By nhughes79 ·
This is probably a simple thing, but its been bothering me for a while. On some of my users machines, when you right click on the start button, some of the options are missing or greyed out. Does anyone know of a way to edit this options or enabled those options that are seemingley disabled???

Kind Regards

Neil Hughes

A guess would be to click on Start>Settings,select Takbar and Start Menu to adjust the menu.

I've narrowed it down to "something in the registry" - after a nasty crash, I reinstalled Win98SE and no longer have the option to "Explore" from the shortcut menu on the Start button. I'll be monitoring this question in the hope that someone knows WHERE in the registry...
