Since changing to a different account in BT Yahoo Broadband I have not been able to automatic log-on via my desktop icons, but have to log-on via Control Panel> Network connections. I've created an Icon for Network connections on the desktop.That works, but surely there should be a better way?
Hmmm - just thinking out-loud - what if you try a right-click on icon when you have it on desktop and then click on Send To/Desktop (Create Shortcut). Dunno if it would work, but worth a try I guess, it might stay there then when you start up again.
Yes, I was thinking about the icon that you have created from Control Panel - what I was thinking was, that it might work if you now right-click on That Icon and then SendTo> etc, I know it sounds daft, but then so do lots of things in computing - most of which does not make any sense to me anyway, but these things still seem to work - quite often anyway.
Just had another thought - rather than go the long way round - what if you just click on IE, I would think that it would then say something like 'you are not on-line would you like to connect now' - or words to that effect, then you could click on Yes and perhaps go on-line that way.
Sorry about yesterday. I was called away. I have used IE, selected my home page and saved that. That will get me to my home pge alright but I can't log-on from there. I now use theicon I'd put on my desktop linking to the Control Panel and Network connection. That works so I'll leave it at that I think. Thanks for your help Tiger.
