Windows 7: 2 explorer problems

20 Feb 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64, Mac OS X 10.6.2 x64
2 explorer problems

1. The "Send to desktop (as shortcut)" link in the right click menu is missing.

2. For some reason, now everything is underlined, and only takes 1 click to open, instead of double clicking.

Edit: Number 2 was fixed.

1. Make a new one in the sendto folder - shell:sendto in start/search
2. Maybe you have changed double click action to single click - in Folder Options > General
