View Full Version : Dial-up 'Connected To' window

08-09-2002, 11:24 PM
Is it possible to automatically (via registry tweak presumably) make the 'connected to' status window come up full size on the desktop (Win9x) immediately dial-up is established? Only other option is to d/click the taskbar icon......main reason is to remind one that modem is still connected.

An alternative to this is to make internet explorer ask you to disconnect after you close Internet explorer.

This setting is somewhere in internet options I think I see at the moment as I am on a network at NMIT and so can't check everything

As mentioned you can have IE select to inform you and ask to disconnect when a connect may not be required (that is - you have shut down IE, Outlook Express and so on)

In IE,
Click: Tools | Internet Options | Connections
Single click your default dial up connection
Click: Settings
Click: Advanced
Select: Disconnect when connection may no longer be needed
Click: ok | ok | ok

Give that a go
