View Full Version : Couple of missing items in Win 98....

22-04-2006, 03:38 PM
1. "Minimise windows" icon missing in system tray
2. Return of MRUs "(latest files viewed)" in My Documents icon in Start Pop-up.

Over the years I've been tweaking, and, as a result these have gone. How do I tweak them back again. I have Tweak UI installed, but that doesn't seem to do the trick. Help would be appreciated.
Thanks, guys.

I didn't realise that a 'Minimise Windows' icon in the system tray was a part of Windows 98SE, are you sure it isn't a utility that was added at some time?

If you right click the Taskbar then there is a minimise all windows option which is greyed out until a window is open. (well that's what my win98 does)

In TweakUI-Paranoia there is a 'Clear Document history at logon' option, maybe this has been ticked?

Good thinking. I checked that and was unticked. So I checked it and then unchecked it again t o see what will happen. Very little, I suspect...
Yes, I use that Minimise alll windows dropdown all the time now. But yes, I did have that icon in Win 98 SE once. Perhaps it may have come in with an IE update?
