I think that is what was going on.  So how do I drag the OE icon into my 
quick launch at the bottom of my screen?

thanks Gman

I "have" to uninstall office 2000 now.  Ever since the install and uninstall 
of the newer one, my powerpoint and word will not work without me installing 
the disks and I do not have them here now.  So, fingers crossed.


When you click on your IE's email button, you're now being
directed to Outlook instead of OE.
