I have recently upgraded to winxp, from win98se. My problem is when I click on START->DOCUMENTS there is no DOCUMENTS,MY PICTURES or MY RECIEVED FILES tabs, like there was in win98.

If I want to get to MY PICTURES etc, I have to right click the START button and go through explore. Is there a way I can get those icons back like they were in win98?

Hope I explained this well enough.

Put your mouse cursor on the Start button and right click on it and then choose properties, make sure that you have Start Menu selected and not Classic Start menu.

To continue with cmw2010's, click the Customize button on the Start Menu tab, then select the Advanced tab. Scroll to My Documents and check the box Display as a Menu. Not going to be like Win 98, but will allow you to get to the My Documents items. Another way is to right-click on the bottom Toolbar, then select Toolbars from slide out menu. Click on New Toolbar, then choose the My Documents folder.
