There is a registry key called something like NODESKTOPSHOW under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer in Win2K. Value 1 enables, & 0 disables the desktop tab in display properties.
Had a quick look in regedit (WinXP), but couldn't locate any such key (then again mine hasn't been disabled.)
If you can't find it, & you back up your registry 1st, it couldn't hurt to try creating the key yourself (think it's a DWORD) and set the value to 0. You'll need admin privileges to do this.
Maybe someone else could step in here and throw some light on where it lives now?:confused:

If it is a policy setting, this one would have the shown effect

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ Software\ Microsoft\ Windows\ CurrentVersion\ Policies\ System
DWORD: NoDispBackgroundPage = 1

Which program did you uninstall?

Apparently, the program name is "this gay ass"... :eek: :D

So you don't have this key at the moment? Check the same location but not in HKEY_CURRENT_USER but in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
