    Windows 95 Explorer problem

    Locked

    by espo-john ·

    When I open Windows 95 Explorer. The Directories and Folders appear on the left as usual. If I try to view the contents of the folder , which normally appears on the right, it appears empty, however if I check the properties of the folder it appears normal with No. of files and size.
    I have a 97.7 MG Ram,6 Gig HD. All other applications apear to be working fine.

      Does this happen in only one folder, or all folders?

      One thing to try: click on View -> Options and make sure “Show all files” is checked.

      I forgot to mention that I did verify that the Show all files is checked in the view options.

      Weird problem. Have you tried changing settings on the drop-down menu under View? Change to Large Icons, Small Icons, etc. Do you have scroll bars? Column headings at top when viewing as Details? Are your antivirus files up to date & have you scanned for a virus? Can you see the contents of your directories in DOS?

        thanks I found the problem, but it was similar to your answer. (the vertical bar which separated the folders from the files was off the screen)I believe I had a power failure and somehow the screen got blitzed.
