  • Memory settings may have changed in XP

    Noticed no more memory tab settings if the Alt + space bar is
    used. Also noticed that \windows\_default has the memory
    setting for enabling expanded/extended memory.
    Also noticed that always suspend is marked, but has no effect.
    Using Windows XP Professional 5.1 (build 2600)

    XP's DOS and console window Properties are much the same as the equivalent Windows 2000 Properties:

    ALT+SPACE brings up the Properties of the console (DOS) window, not the Properties of the DOS emulation session that is using that console window. IOW, to get to the memory setting, you need to open the Properties of the shortcut/PIF-file that you use to start the DOS app.

    Suspend should work, but it only has any effect when the console window loses focus, just as with any other version of Windows.

      It doesn't stop my clock display on the main main if
      the program loses focus with suspend. It used to.
      I'm saying things have changed and there is no memory tab.
