Windows Raymond Chen's The Old New Thing - one of the best Windows blogs on the web - has a very interesting item up about a certain bit of behaviour in Windows 95 I was unaware of. Basically, there's a neat little trick where you can close and move the Start button. It wasn't a feature, but a bug.

know how to *restore* that button.

But it was much more satisfying when people pulled the trick on you, and you managed to get it back *without* a reboot. From memory, you just did a Ctrl-Alt-Del to get to the task manager, then killed Explorer. That would actually be restarted, and come up again with a shiny new Start button. And result in disappointed bystanders...


FYI - that's also called a "Developer's Reboot" and is commonly used by deveopers of plugins for Explorer to cycle the system. :-)
