Missing 'Set Program Access and Defaults' option

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Muse De Groops, Mar 15, 2007.

  1. I just noticed,

    After getting XP Pro Sp2, there is no 'Set Program Access and Defaults'
    option in the start menu...

    is it in a different place in XP Pro?

    Right-click on Start, choose properties, click on Customize, click on
    Advanced and add it.....

    Try: control panel>add or remove programs>set program access and defaults
    (ion on left side).

    Perhaps trying: start>run and enter "%SystemRoot%\system32\control.exe
    appwiz.cpl,,3" (w/o quotes)>OK
