Win98 won't open a new window

    Hi, all

    Since I upgraded to an LCD monitor yesterday, Windows 98se doesn't want
    to open new windows thru either the taskbar icon or File menu. It
    *seems* to mis-direct the command to the original window, like a Refresh
    command.

    By hitting CTRL + N rapidly I can overwhelm the blockage, but then I've
    got 6 or 7 new windows when I wanted one. Windows has done this before,
    but the problem seemed to go away by itself, probably after a reset. Not
    this time, though.

    Any idea what causes Windows98 SE to botch New Window commands? I don't
    know why upgrading the monitor would affect the OS.

    Thanks,
    JPM

    Check in Folder Options>General tab, there's an option there to 'Open each
    folder in its own window', tick it, mayhap that will solve the problem, hope
    so...luck...
