Went to my control panel (w98SE) to change desktop display after starting up in safe mode and found no 'display' icon. Anyway of re-installing it?

I must admit that it's been a while since I used 98SE, but could you please tell me what this display icon is? I can't remember it from my time of using it.

The display icon is in the control panel and alters screen size,icon size and general look of the desktop. Unfortunately i can't see it no more and am stuck with a mess of a desktop. I have tried using the 'customize my desktop' command on the desktop (right click) but nothing happens?

If memory serves me right, you should be able to right click your desktop and select Properties

That ought to give you the same work environment as when you go to Control Panel and select Display.

Try this and report back please.

In that case, it seems like your Win98SE has become too corrupted to give you all the options you used to have. But the upside is, you can reinstall your OS from scratch and then keep using all your programs regardless, though it would be a good idea to install some of them again for registry checks.

If you don't fancy doing that, I reckon you only have the option to live with this problem, unless you have the original driver CD/floppy disk to reinstall things like graphics card drivers etc.
