    Hello,

    I have a Dell Inspiron N4110 on W7 64 bit which recently received a reinstall of W7 after the installation of an SSD. In the new install the desktop files have the back and forward buttons but they are disabled somehow---'blued out'--- and I can't seem to figure out where in control panel the fix lies. Any thoughts?

    Had this once before, Do you have the folder options set to open in a new window? Because if so change to open in the same Window by Opening the Start Menu and searching "Folder Options", it will be under Control Panel, once in there, look for "Browse Folders" and change it to "Open in the same Window"
    -Hope it helps :)
