Hi...

I use Win98

Usually i have several things to do next time i
open the computer...

SO... i keep some open folders and windows in the task bar...
then when i open the computer, i see them in the task bar.

It seems that there is a sudden problem with my windows!
this feature is disabled!

Now... when i leave some folders opened, restart.. they are disapeared.. i just see the desktop!

I tried this several times with no luck...
i also shut down the computer , and tried again.. but with the same results: the opened folders were forgottent!

What can i do?

Is there is any better (and easier) way than re-instaling windows again?


thanks

Mary

I don't know why those opened folders and windows would have disappeared suddenly.  But perhaps you can accomplish much the same thing by creating shortcuts for your most commonly used folder and program windows and then dragging them to the Startup folder on the Start Menu.

By restarting, do you mean you turn off you computer and turn it back on? If so, you might want to use the SUSPEND option. This usally leaves the desktop as it is and turns the power off from the hard disk(s).
