Disconnect/Stay Connected Box

  Pucky 11:14 28 Dec 2003

I used to have a box that appeared on the desktop that asked if I wanted to disconnect or stay connected to the internet. It has gone. Any ideas how to get it back?

Go to Control panel and then Internet Connections and then right-click on your ISP and select 'properties'. You'll see a check box against 'show icon in notification area'. This should be ticked.

Pucky I don't know what o/s you're using but if you double click on the 2 wee TVs in your systems tray when you're online that box comes onscreen. .....Peter

Tools>Internet Options brings up the same box.

The Stay Connected/Disconnect box usually appears if you close all Internet windows down such as IE and OE without first disconnecting.

Try starting a proper thread in the HelpRoom rather than hi-jacking an entirely unrelated thread.....:-)

Hi Pucky. Tools - Internet Options - Connections - Settings - Advanced, then put a tick in the box for "Disconnect when the connection may no longer be needed". However this isn't totally reliable because Microsoft appear to have a different idea of "when the connection may no longer be needed" from the rest of the world.
