Windows Me: Bugs & Fixes

After installing Windows Me a number of my files have been changed to capital letters

Symptom: Installing Windows Me causes some file names like system files and HTML files to change their names into capital letters

Reply: Despite the fact that this bug can cause problem with programs like FrontPage webs, Microsoft has now stated to us that this is actually by design. In our mind if that is the case, then it is a really stupid one. Many people like to keep all of their files in lowercase (The majority) and do not want an operating system to start changing the way things were. Currently we are led to believe that this only happens in certain folders like /windows.

Fix: There is currently no fix available.
