No, that is my problem. None of my shortcuts on my desktop are able to use
this function.

As a test, create a new shortcut to a file on the Desktop and see if it
works.

well.

As I don't have a 2000 copy to work with anymore, perhaps you will tell
us the error message you get when you select "Find Target".

There is no error. Nothing happens, no error, no blip, no runtime, nothing
happens.

You didn't happen to install something like this?
http://downloads-zdnet.com.com/TwinGrid-Address-Book/30...

Or perhaps "Treesize", I saw a mention of it breaking "Find Target"

Or reg edits simular to?
http://www.winguides.com/registry/display.php/1150/

I couldn't find anything in the MS KB otherthan Win98 issues, so it
doesn't seem to be a frequent issue.

No, I've been searching for "Find Target" + "Broken". You may want to
prowl a bit and see if any of the hits on Google fit the circumstances.
