The Case of the Missing Properties

After installing SP2 for Win2000 Professional, I found that right-clicking on a file no longer brought up the properties for that file.

After trawling around the newsgroups, I found that this is a fairly common problem.

The solution that presented itself and worked for me was to select a few files in a given folder, then right-click and choose properties (which opens the properties window for those files). After doing that, the Properties window came up as expected.

Go figure.
