I've a couple of questions re Vista Windows Explorer and IE7's right-click context menu that you may be able to help me out with (I've posted this on mad-onion's forum without much luck).
1. Windows Explorer.
I like Explorer to display all the folders in the same way, i.e. with the medium size icon. Now in XP, this is dead easy. You configure the current window to look the way you want it then go to the View tab in Tools > Folder Options and pressing Apply to All Folders.
Alas in Vista, there's no Tools > Folder Options in the window menu bar so I can't do the same as in XP.
I know Folder Options is still available via the Control Panel, but the Apply to All Folders there doesn't set the icon size that I want.
2. IE7 right-click context menu
Put simply, the context menu doesn't work.
I can right-click to bring up the menu, but there is no select bar to select from the menu.
The Vista installation is an upgrade from beta2 to RC1 5600 to RC1 5728 and I'm sure is a security measure that was introduced in the beta2 to RC1 5600 but I can't work our which. I've even tried putting the Internet security zone to nothing but it's still occurring. I'm sure that a lot of port are being blocked - streaming videos are very hit and miss - but I don't know why seeing as I don't have any firewall aside from the one in my router which I know is fine as all honky dory when I boot to my XP install.
Anyone know how to get around these annoying little hiccups?
(sorry for the long first post!)
