When I create a new folder in XP pro it doesn't come up with the
folder name highlighted, ready for me to type my own name. As other XP
machines do. Instead it just creates a folder named New Folder and
puts it at the bottom of the directory. Any ideas how I get it to stop
on the naming part of creating the folder?

Thanks,

These only seem relevant when creating a folder in explorer, my doc's
or on a mapped drive, but I got the problem always. Anyway it seems to
have somehow fixed itself. Mystery!?
