Yes, about "Sort your Program Menu out !":

I'm sorry to say this, but isn't it a well known Windows option ?
It was already available under Win98 (and 95 surely !) !
I personally use it everytime, indeed each time I add a new prog. that wants to be indexed in the start menu.

So, was this tip a joke, or is there someone on earth, using Windows a little and the right way, who doesn't know this ?

You'd be surprised by the amount of people who don't know little tips like that, you can do the same thing with your favorites menu in IE, but people were on this board asking that very question :p

I know you're right, and indeed I'm a little surprised ? Didn't these individuals ever tried a right-click in their start menu ? I guess the answer is "No", because if they had, they would have seen this option...

So, I withdraw my comment, and say thank you if you helped these individuals !!!

Sometimes I forget simple options too :(

Like System Restore, I get so pissed off I did something wrong, I forget all about it :)

another easy one that makes me laugh is when people ask how do I get the status bar at the bottom of IE. which is course is just view - > status bar!. Its becuase it makes sense when you say it together "view status bar" thats makes it so funny.
But you don't tell people its funny or laugh at them becuase as the great man says. "The question is only easy if you know the answer"

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
