Introduction: Access Hidden Programs, C: Drive, Flash Drives and MP3 Players at School

Here is how to access drives at school that are blocked by your system admin. Also Windows XP comes pre-loaded with apps like movie maker, but they are usually not available at school (until now).

Step 1: Installing Software

Go to

" http://www.free-downloads.net/programs/2xExplorer " and download 2x explorer. You can download it to the H: drive at school or download it to a floppy at home.

Thanks "jeowf" for talking about this app.

Step 2: Using 2x Explorer

Extract the .zip archive and open "2xExplorer".

Type C: or the letter of your flash drive or mp3 in the top bar then press ENTER.

Step 3: Using the Hidden Apps

Go to the "C" Drive... Program Files... Movie Maker...moviemk.exe to use movie maker.

Go to " C:\Program Files\Windows NT\Pinball\pinball.exe to play Pinball.

Go to "C:\WINDOWS\system32\mspaint.exe" for Paint


Please feel free to post the file paths to other hidden apps in the Comments.

Thanks for reading... hope this works... good luck

I like this idea, but sometimes the school blocks the access of downloading anything from the web or going on websites like these. Try this:

It can do the exact same thing but you don't need dlld
