    Inmy XP home pc, why is that when I right click my computer, it shows the
    details of the "Network Connections" and not details of 'my computer' such as
    'anage/propertires"
    Please advice as how can I get the menu back, thanks

    I found this, which might be something to look at:

    http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm

    Under this entry on the page in the right column it lists:

    83. Properties Missing From My Computer

    If you look at this registry key what do you see?

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
    "NoPropertiesMyComputer"=dword:00000000

    Is there any chance you could take a screenshot of the context menu you
    see when you right click on My Computer?

    Realised that the network places icon were renamed as 'my computer', so the
    matter now resolved. I have put the 'my computer" on the desktop and it works
    fine. Many thanks for your suggestion.
