 HELP! how do you set DESKTOP

How do you make a dir the desktop?  I had some PESKY probs booting, so I
remade the INI files, and trashed the EA's for the desktop. Now I need to
know how to make the C:\DESKTOP directory the desktop again. It pops up
icon view when booting, but it doesn't have the wonderful desktop pop up
menu, with the shutdown and the like.

HELP!  :)

try SET DESKTOP=[path] in your config.sys

I just recently discovered this in the os2sys.ini file.  There is an
"application" in os2sys.ini called FolderWorkareaRunningObjects which has
the path to the desktop as a key.  I've only read this value from the ini
and it pointed to the right place.  I don't know the  consequences of
changing it or whether it actually determines where  the desktop is loaded
from, but you might want to check it out.
