  1. folder options > view > uncheck restore previous folder windows at logon ?

    Don't listen to a newbie, listen to the <A HREF="http://evilcity.com/" target="_new">evilness</A> inside you...
  2. unfortunately this doesn't apply to win 98 - this option is available only in windows xp - got any other ideas ?????
  3. Close all windows before restarting?

    That's what I used to do before I got XP...

  5. that what i do but the problem is when i forget a window it loads every time windows start - my question is "where does windows stores the folders to be loaded the next time it boots ?"
  6. That's a good question. You will find way more win98 answers <A HREF="http://www.annoyances.org/exec/forum/win98" target="_new">here</A> than here at Tom's. Probably better to ask there.

  7. dont be so lazy and close the dam things, it will probably shut down quicker anyway.
    anyhow, www.regedit.com has the answer cant tell you exactly where but it is there.


    If they squeeze olives to get olive oil, how do they get baby oil?
  8. another idea is <A HREF="http://www.winguides.com/registry/display.php/152/" target="_new">here</A> Screw that other guy who called you lazy. People like to be a$$holes when you can't see them

  9. oh really!

  10. Okay sorry I got huffy. I didn't feel it was fair to the guy that you called him lazy after he showed the patience to sit through a lot of non-answers to his question. He just wanted to know where some info was stored (and I checked your link but couldn't find it there either) and was not looking for workarounds. Obviously he knew when he made his post that one option was to close the windows prior to shutdown.
