Screen Saver and Settings only Display options?

by hairymon / April 7, 2006 4:13 AM PDT

There's a workstation here in the office that when you opt to change the display (i.e. you right click the desktop, but it happens if you click on Display in Control Panel too), the only tabs that appear are "Screen Saver" and "Settings".

There is no option for "Themes", "Desktop", or "Appearance". I have not seen this on any other workstation. The OS is Win XP Pro SP2

Any thoughts on this?

It may be just a workstation and the O/S is not part of it, but is on a central server. If that's the case, any changes would have to carried out from there.

hairymon, Go to the link below and scroll down to line 285 right column and download the "Restore All Display Tabs" reg file fix. Save the REG File to your hard disk. Double click it and answer yes to the import prompt. It should correct the problem.

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
