I am missing my other tabs for Properties for the Desktop. When I click on properties a box pops up with Display properties----Then it has a theme option drop down menu----save as----Delete. I am missing my setting tab---display tab. It is very tiresome when I need to change my settings cause I play a lot of adventure games. :thumbsup:

This might help.

http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/regs_edits...displaytabs.reg

It is found on--

http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm

It is #285 on the right. -- "Restore All Display Tabs"

It alters the registry.
Back it up first.

If what medab1 suggested doesn't work, you can try this one:
kellys-korner
Restore/Enable Screensaver Tab Settings/Display - #227, on the Right

NOTE: This is a registry edit.
Remember to backup the registry before making any changes.
If something goes wrong, it could render your computer inoperable.
