When I click minimise icon on the title bar, the window or file doesn’t minimise to a button on the Windows task bar. It disappears.

Is this for *all* applications or just some?

I am assuming you are using WinXP?

Have a look here (http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_abc.htm). Click on the "T" and then on the "Minimized Programs Missing". You will be prompted to download a .vbs file to your desktop. Once you have done that, double click on it to run. It will correct the registry key entry that is preventing the minimised windows to show on the taskbar. Let us know how you get on. :)

I like your link- Good old Kelly's Corner. It sure does have heaps of good stuff.

Jen - You're a genius! Everything A-OK. Muchas Gracias.
I just wonder why I can never find the answer to such problems in my multitude of expensive XP Help books:(
