I can live with this but I'd really rather not.
If I (for instance) click on Control Panel, then click on System, the System window comes up under the Control Panel window.
Then if I click on Hardware, that window comes up under the System window. And on and on.
Usually there is a little bit of the new window sticking out where I can click on it to bring it to the top, but sometimes I have to move the top window around to uncover the one I just opened.
Is there a property setting that is telling XP to do this? Can I change it?

Hello, maybe this will work

In the main control panel window go to "Folder Options" and In the "Browse Folders" check the "same window" radio button.

And if that doesn't work, you can always use alt-tab to move to a different window.

Try running Error Checking first & sfc /scannow next.

There is a space between the c and the /.

Click Start/RUN & type in sfc /scannow & click OK.
It takes a while to run.

One thing to know about this, is that you need to have your XP CD handy. Also that it is possible thats XP Hotfixes may be overwritten.

Be (XP CD in hand) Safe
