Hiya, I've tried my very best to get some of my shell commands working as they did in XP and do work in Vista 32 bit (my laptop) but on Vista 64 bit... not many of them work. Is there a registry hack or something that I can do to get some of my favorites back up and running?? Also, can someone tell what the heck the deal is with the transparency is in the folders and desktop? You click in a blank area around the icon and it's still selecting the darned icon. Makes it really a PITA to drag and select groupings of icons to move them around quickly. Didn't have this issue in XP Pro at all. Is there an easy way to access the New menu in the right click menu? I want to remove some of those items and add others since so many of my shell commands are missing (like OpenExpert or OpenWith programs). OK, that's all for now. Thanks and hope someone can help!!
