"All Programs" button does not work in Start-Up menu

by zwaving / January 18, 2006 6:26 PM PST

I am operating on a Dell 8300 with Win Xp Pro.
For no reason my "All Programs" button is not functioning. Found out when I wanted to go to a "Restore Point"
How do I get it to work and is it possible to go to a "Restore Point" without using the "All programs Button"??

Uncheck 'hide all system folders' in Folder Options 'View' menu. Search 'System Volume Information', in 'My Computer'. You'll see a long row of figures and letters, expand this,or these and find an appropriate 'RP' no.
If you cant see the start up window, press Windows key on keyboard.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
