Problem with icon in taskbar

  Meshuga 19:12 02 Mar 2007

From time to time when I boot up the 2 little monitors in the task bar,near the clock, which show activity, fail to appear and I have to restart the pc to get them to do so. The appropriate box in control panel-Taskbar is ticked. Anyone know of a cure for this please. My OS is xphome sp2.

Right click on a blank area of the task bar.

Click Properties; Customise.

Look for the flashing monitors icon and, at the right-hand side, click on whatever it currently says under 'Behaviour' next to the monitors icon.

Ensure that 'Always Show' is selected. Click Apply

Many thanks for that Jackcoms. It showed "Hide when inactive". Have changed it to always show. I didn`t know that that facility existed. Regards.
