Missing dialup connection icon

  adb1107 10:00 15 Mar 2004


My Mum has just bought a secondhand PC, which is running XP Pro. When she dials Freeserve, the connection icon fails to appear in the taskbar, so she has no reminder that she is connected, or quick way of disconnecting.

Any suggestions how to get this to appear? (I can't find anything in the taskbar properties dialog)

Right click the dial up connection, Properties, under the General tab, tick the box for Show icon in taskbar when connected. Click OK.
