Windows Explorer ?

Postby 10RDan » Tue May 18, 2010 4:59 pm

I'm not thick, :crazy: , but I've just had to format my C drive, long story, and I'm buggered if I can find Windows Explorer to put a shortcut on my desktop. Help, I'm running XP.

Cheers

I think you mean Internet Explorer. Windows Explorer is not a program as such - it just kicks in when you click on a folder or file.

As PMB said, find it under programs and right click on it.
