Is this not the case? -- Ah sh*t! sys64738 -- labdog December 21, 2001 9:58:54 AM i already try this & that don't work but i has viewed some options for the "hide tray icons" function there is a popup list to personalize this function & for some icons it's set to "Always display" & for others it's set to "Hide if no activity" i has tried to set all to "Always display" but icons with "Hide" set don't want to change to "Always" they stay to "Hide if no Activity" i even has tried to reboot just after changes but winXP stay on old values this is because i think maybe there is bug with this function EasyInfo :cool: I would like to Invest for my PC !! ok, buy nothing. :wink: Can't find your answer ?
