- Confirm after download
- Always show extension
- Browse in same window.
The problem is "Browse in same window" is grayed out. I have numerous computers from Compaq and Dell with pre-loaded...Step 2 of 2:
Win2k and this exists in all builds.
Some people that have loaded Win2k themselves (unsure if upgrade or not) have this button available. I work in an engineering environment and being able to browse in the same window is needed. Do you know how I can turn this button on through a reg hack or MMC or something else?
It appears to me that you do not have local admin rights on the machines. I'm not aware of a group policy that controls this feature, although there are a lot of oddball controls buried in the registry.
Microsoft Knowledge Base article Q257592 appears to address the problem. It outlines a change in the way Windows 2000 manages the folder options and associations. Try the registry hack suggested in the article and see if this resolves the problem.
