    Windows XP had an option to configure Internet Explorer to open Office documents in the appropriate Office program instead of in Internet Explorer. As the option (File Types tab) is missing in Windows Vista, can anyone aid in a solution other than saving the file upon download?
    Here is a quick tip on how to copy the Command Prompt output to the clipboard.
    When you double-click a network drive in My Computer, the Open With dialog may appear rather than displaying the drive contents. However, when you right-click on the drive and choose Explore, the drive opens correctly as it should.
    Where can I find the details of all my mapped drives? I have a substantial amount of mapped drives on my old Windows XP install and wish to export or retrieve them in some way so I can recreate the mappings on my new XP install. The old Windows XP is not running, but I do have the hard disk connected hoping that I can recover the mappings from the old hard drive prior to reformatting.
    When you open the Folder Options applet in your Windows XP computer, one or all of the following tabs may be missing:
    I changed Desktop Themes and then switched back to Windows Classic theme. The Recycle Bin icon is now merely an icon indicating it's a picture of some sort, but it isn't the default trash icon. If I put something in the Recycle Bin, the icon returns to normal. When I empty the Recycle Bin, the icon reverts to the generic icon. Any suggestions on how to fix the Recycle bin icon? I'm using Windows XP.
    When you move the My Documents folder to a different drive/folder manually or using TweakUI PowerToys for Windows XP, the folder may be displayed with a generic icon.

    Since installing Windows Desktop Search (WDS) v3, when I right click on a folder and then click on Search..., WDS opens. This is hardly ever what I want. The same happens when I click Search from the Start menu. How do I reinstate the Windows XP Search Companion?
    Using Mozilla Firefox, I'm trying to assign Windows Picture and Fax Viewer over Photoshop as default when opening image files, but I can't find the program in windows explorer. Where is the application file for windows Windows Picture and Fax Viewer?

    It seems like I've lost half of the long list of schemes available in mouse properties. I used a large arrow scheme before but now I use the smaller default system scheme one. This all started after I added "mouse pointers" in Windows components in add/remove programs. Any idea how I can get all the schemes back that I once had?

    When you open Disk Defragmenter console, the menu options, column headers and the command buttons may appear blank with no text in them. Reinstalling Disk Defragmenter using the DFRG.INF file also may not help.

    The option Create a wizard disk in the following drive is grayed out when using the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard.
