Many thanks, that worked ok.
The reason I wanted to do this is that if I forget to switch on my scanner
before switching on, XP doesn't see it and I have to restart with it switched
on if I need it.
I've found by going into Device Manager/OEM Computer/Scan for Hardware
Changes I can make XP locate the scanner after I switch it on without
I take it I can't create a shortcut direct to 'Scan for hardware change' so
only one mouse click will make it find my scanner?
