Hi,

Many new notebooks don't show the icon for 'My Computer' on the desktop by
default. But that's fairly easy to rightclick My Computer from the Start
menu and select Show on desktp to fix this.

However I cannot find a way to add or copy the 'Network neigbouhood' or 'My
network places' or whatever this icon is called in English to the desktop on
a IBM ThinkPad. How do I do that...?

regards

Rod

1. Right-click an empty spot on the desktop.
2. Click Properties.
3. Click Desktop.
4. Click Customize Desktop.
5. Put a check mark in the box for My Network Places.
