i was thinking of the 'good old days'. in windows 3.11 I ahd one icon on my desktop for my Office Programs and when I clicked on it iit opened with a box containing an icon for Word, excel etc.

can XP/Vista create suchh a feature as well, having fewer icons on the desktop and upon cllcking displaying the underlying program group ?

Cheers

There is nothing stopping you creating a folder called "Office" on your desktop and then putting all your Office app shortcuts in it. You can even customise the folder icon by going into its properties and changing the icon from there.
