Connecting to the Internet

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by cheekycharlie, Apr 29, 2004.

  1. Hi
    I am running Win XP Home, Using IE and OE6. I am also on broadband.
    Everytime I want to log on
    to the internet I have to go through Outlook Express. This brings a box up
    asking me to connect.
    Is there a quicker way to access the internet e.g. by putting a shortcut on
    my desktop or task bar etc? Any other help in this area would also be
    Thanks for any help.
    CC :)

    Contact your ISP for info!
    Who is your provider?

    Uh, I don't get it. A broadband connection is generally 'always on'
    (and is still 'just there' when you turn your computer back on. You
    can't just click a short-cut icon to your browser from Desktop,
    Quick-launch bar, or Start Menu?
    If you don't have (for whatever reason) a shortcut to IE; navigate
    to the program .exe (something like C:\Program Files\Internet
    Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE), right-click; send to; desktop (create shortcut).
    You should be able to either use it from there, or drag it down to
    the Quick-launch bar (first making sure that 'toolbars are unlocked').
    Or, if you already have a shortcut on your Start Menu; just
    right-click and copy/ paste to where you want it.
