Windows Explorer in WIndows 2000

When I open windows explorer there is no menu bar (no way of moving up or down in folders etc. It just has the open folder window. There is no way that I can see to "view" the contents in any way other than the one it currently has. How do I access the usual functions that Windows Explorer has on my other systems that run XP?

thanks,

As far as I can tell, you're looking for the list of folders at the left side of the Windows Explorer, is this right?

To get it to show, when it has been turned off for some reason do the following:
Open Windows Explorer, then at the top, click on 'view' > 'Explorer Bar' > 'Folders'
When that is checked you should see your folder list at the left side reappear.

If you are speaking of the buttons to navigate pages (standard buttons) then do the following:
Open Windows Explorer, then at the top, click on 'view' > 'Toolbars' > 'Standard Buttons'

If neither of these are what you're looking for, please provide more detail.

Hope this helps, cheers.
