    On my dad's computer, he has WinXP Pro installed, and would like to use active desktop so he can check his frequently viewed websites quick and easily, but i cant seem to find the option to do it in XP Pro. I read some sites, they all describe it in winXP, where thers a WEB tab in the desktop properties, but its nonexistant in XP Pro.

    Help?

    Thanks
    -Nick

    Click on the Desktop tab (where you can pick wallpaper) then click Customize. There should be a Web tab there.

    Okay then!

    Maybe it's disabled by policy? Run gpedit.msc and look for the active desktop setting.
