Customizing Explorer

The Explorer windows support a large amount of customization options. In fact, the default appearance of Explorer on a brand new Windows installation looks quite different to the screenshots above. If you were to navigate to the C:\WinNT folder under a default installation of Windows 2000 or XP, you would see the following window.

From a user’s point of view, this is great – Microsoft is making it more awkward for people to fiddle with the core operating system files. For the A+ technician though, it is important to be able to access both hidden and system files. To allow this, open the Tools menu and choose the “Folder Options” item. The dialog in Figure 53 will appear.

We saw this dialog earlier when choosing between single and double click navigation. This time we will delve a little further into the available options.
