RE: KMD vs. Cmd Command Processor (inside XP)

Windows Explorer can generally be summoned by [windows-key]-e regardless of
where MS hides it in its menus.

I find that Taskbar Properties | Start Menu | Classic Start Menu makes more
sense than the new version. This may address the "UI" issue you mention.

I expect there's a good chance this is covered in past
posts, and may be uncovered via XySearch, but . . .


Early-discovered examples, so far: Windoze Explorer --
I thought it had gone AWOL, until I found it hidden in
My Documents (huh ?), and much less convenient to use
in its new incarnation.


The new UI of XP in toto is just clumsy, obtuse, in
the way. Yeccch ! Maybe someone coming straight from
W95 would feel different, but I'd say even that is

I realize that at this point XP is 6+ years old, but
I'm just finding this out now. I'm hoping with faint
hope that there might be some switch I can throw to
just have XP present the W2K UI, as it was.
