Unable to view the My Documents folder, XP SP2
Posted on 2008-11-18
Suddenly, I'm unable to open the "My Documents" folder on my XP sp2 computer. I can get to it from My Computer, but not directly. When I double-click on the shortcut or the item on the start menu, it just shows in the task bar. It also does this if I right-click on the icon and choose explore.
From here I just see "My Documents" on the task bar. I can't view the windows explorer window for this folder. When I right click on the task bar, over "My Documents" and choose maximize, restore, size, cascade, etc.. nothing happens.
I've checked the properties of the shortcut. It's set to open in a normal window. I've tried changing it to a maximized window. Didn't help.
I've even tried reinstalling XP sp2. Didn't help.
Thanks in advance.
