    Default Ugly folder pane on the desktop

    Hi all,

    For some reason, I now have an ugly folder pane on my desktop...
    Now I have nothing against it personally, but it is hiding some of my background which I really like...
    I have had a good look around and I can't find the offending setting to get rid of it...does anyone know??

    Oh yeah, and I can't open the folder properties in control panel either...


    Many thanks in advance

    Probably best to take a screenshot and post it to www.imagef1.net.nz for us to see.

    Try going to the Classic look, and if you don't like that, revert back to your existing look and see if that cures it:

    Start | Settings | Taskbar and Start Menu | Start Menu | Classic Start Menu.

    Thank you Jen!!!

    I tried to find something like that for ages!!!

    Now I have a nice clean desktop!!!

    I had tried the classic mode view and back again and also to try and move it using button holds etc...

    That little download worked a treat!!

    Thanks again Jen and all those who took time to look and ponder...
