Loss of Internet connection Icon

  chas 12:26 29 Mar 2004

A friend of mine has lost the 'Two Screens' internet connection icon at the bottom of his screen.
Any ideas on how to get it back??

Control Panel\Network Connections. Right click the connection and choose Properties. Ensure that "Show icon in notification area" is ticked.

Right click the connection he is using in network connections (control panel) and tick the box.

Sounds good, will try next time I see him.
While we are at it, is it possible to put a desktop icon at the bottom of the screen enabeling a return to desktop with out resizing application?? Win 98

There should already be a desktop icon on the bottom left hand side of the task bar next to the Start. but if not right click the toolbar select toolbar and there should be an option for quicklaunch make sure that is ticked.

Re Skell. I have tried that and I get two or three 'application' styled boxes not an icon. I used to have an icon, but like everything else on this computer it has a mind of it's own and disapeared. Think it needs a good spring clean but to frightened to contemplate it!
