i want new folders to open in same window,
without creating new windows all over the place.
can't seem to get to it, although i used to be able to...

in the view menu, folder options, general
only "classic style" is available.
custom is grayed out and unavailable
web style is also unavailable.

in view menu, customize this folder - it seems
that the html wizard is not working. also, background
bitmaps don't show, and i'm not sure what is the best
html editor to point it to.

please help
many thanks,

Ok, what rev/version of Win98 are you running?

how long ago could you access those features? What changed between then and now on your configuration?
