The only tabs left in the Folder Options windows are "General", "View" and
"Search"


What's going on?

Maybe the following articles will offer some ideas:

Thanx for replying. I assumed this is due to new Windows upgrades/updates.

I actually wanted to fix the following problem that I posted before:

"Hello all,

Normally, when I clicked on a download link on a webpage, a window pops up
telling me the progress of the download by showing percentages. This
afternoon, when I clicked on the same download link, there's no window popped
up. I know it's downloading though because of the hour glass on the webpage
and the download icon on the bottom left corner of the webpage. I tried
download link from a different website, same thing happen. What's going on???
Where's my download window?? I want my "download window" back. How can I fix
it?

Thanx in advance

L & L"


I've got the reply and the probalem was fixed. Now the problem
re-appear...has it got anything with this new Windows 'upgrade'...boy, this
is a moving target...

Cheers

Thanx in advance

I looked through the list under ""associate a file type or protocol with a
specific program", there is no ZIP file type, perhaps it explains my problem.
No file association, no pop-up download window...

There is only 'Change' button for file association, what about 'Add' button.

Man, I'm getting to be impatient with Vista...

Cheers,

I guess you are aware that Vista can unzip files:
