On the left side of My Documents and many of the screens in XP is an area where you can choose different tasks you want to do.  If that blue strip is missing how do I get it back!  I am exhusted trying to figure out what it is called.  I looked it up once and found how to do it (Should have printed it out! UGH!) but can not find it again, Please help!

Hi mjdey,
Click Start, click Control Panel, click Appearance and Themes, and then click Folder Options. On the General tab, under Tasks, select  Show common tasks in folders to restore
