How can I make the Internet Connection Icon stay on 'Always Show'? I go to Customize on the (Right click task bar+properties)and set it up to Always Show. Apply + OK. Next reboot it says Hide when inactive again. Then after I have been connected for a period of time it decides it is inactive and hides it self. I have been to Modem properties and don't know where else to look.
I do indeed mean them and have done this. When you right click on the task bar/properties/customise there are three options for the Icons. No matter how many times I click on Always Show they always revert to Hide wwhen inactive upon reboot.
I see exactly what you mean now, I think if you leave them all set to hide when inactive you will solve your problem. I think you are giving the computer a problem, it can't show the icon unless connected and only shows when you are, and you are asking it to show when you are not connected, although in Network connections you will have atick in the box show icon when connected. Anywat give it a try.
Sometimes it appears in the 'properties' as 'untitled' and sometimes as 'Speedtouch Connection'. Whatever I have tried rawprawn's advice but the icon seems to assume it is no longer being used almost everytime I boot up. It appears for about 30 minutes then hides itself. Does anybody else have a suggestion to make?
