hey chuck;
Actually with a great deal of trepid intimidation I ventured out to mention
I was using winXP...
I have been wanting to do to Linux for a long time...Tried to make the move
once..but I had a bad HD..and everything I owned was windows..
then a started another busn.up and have not had the time to do much of
Now I can't even find "run" I am sure it is like Eric said..Bob took it!
I have been gone all summer..what other explanation could there possibly
Run is there under the classic, but not normal startup..
I might have gotten that backwards in other memos..its the classic that runs
is fine..but not under the winxp one...that is called just plain startup..
when you hit the start and right click on the properties button your given
two choices to stylize the startup. the classic is the old way it use to be
with windows 2000,and 98 etc... the " startup is the winxp version. Kind of
weird...This  problem and not being able to go to a web page when I open a
url by clicking on it is making for a bad computer day on my end...
The trouble with taking time off from computers is your brain turns to mush
by the time you get back to them.

Hi Trapper; Chuck here,

  I'm going to butt in again, one other possibility is; when you open the
"start" menu (or the task bar menu, I forget), is there an entry that has a
in front of "Customized menu" or some wording to that effect (Uncheck it,
then F5 to refresh) .  I seem to remember that XP tends to "Hide" entries
and even icons that don't get used.

BTW Trapper when did you modernize from DOS ;-))??  And I'm still using

 Hi Eric;

Yeah bob probably drowned it in the dang river when he rolled his Kayak..

Yes I can access the "run using the windows key + R...

but the only problem is this..in  " Start menu" it is gone even though it is
checked off...under the classic start menu it appears just fine..???

I haven't a clue what Bob was doing to my "run" while he was under the water
with no helmet on I might add..but eat another Sarmie and get back to me..

Bob took it and ran??

Trapper, on the assumption you're still running XP, hold down the Windows
key on your keyboard (between left Ctrl & Alt buttons) and depress the R
button. You should get the "Run" box. Dunno how to get it back into your
Start menu tho', I've never lost mine.

Hang.... just found out. Right click on the Start button, go to Properties.
Select Customize, then click on Advanced. Scroll down the window until you
find "Run" and place a check mark next to it. OK your way out of there.
Bingo! Run should once more be visible.
