Answer one of these, I dare you....
Posted on 2000-04-22
1. My desktop doesn't show 24 bit icons even though Display Poperties, Effects, Show icons in all possible colors is checked. Why is this happening?
2. Before installing Office 2000 Premium, Windows 98 Explorer showed the number of objects in any given folder in the leftmost section of the status bar. Now that object count is no longer there and I've tried every possible combination of View, Folder Options that involve Active Desktop display or Classic display with the items under the view tab, all to know avail. In essence, I still get the Preview area with the blue in the top left (which I want too), but no object count in the status bar unless I switch to a classic desktop with no preview area. This worked before the install of Office 2000, so obviously IE 5 or Office screwed something up. Any thoughts as to what?
Answer the first to my satisfaction, get the points. Answer the second, get triple the points. These things have been annoying me for months now and Microsoft's site is of no help.
