XP information windows

  Digital 19:51 06 Sep 2005

I have a Speedtouch BB modem with XP SP2. After I tell the modem to connect the little connection icon appears in the Sys Tray & a small window appears above it to tell me it's connected. Does anyone know how I stop this window from appearing, I can't find anything relevant in Help & Support?

right click the icon for the modem (what you click to connect) and choose properties.

check out the tabs across the top, i think its the second or third tab that has the taskbar notification icon settings (you can click to remove the tick and stop it from appearing in the taskbar)

hope thats what you meant.

Thanks both of you. I'll give VoG's link a try; didn't know it was called a Balloon Tip - but what do I know, especially about XP!
