I am doing some work on a Compaq EVO laptop for a friend, there is a vertical band on the desktop with 3 drop down headings : - Folder Tasks - Other Places - Details

How do get rid of this? very annoying as it takes up about 1/5th of the screen Thanks

Sea Urchin's link redone

it's those _ underscores that mess up the links. If you use 2 of of them in the same sentance or paragraph it changes the words inbetween to italics

Like this underscore each side of this
