ms should get feedback from this page...some problems i haven't even heard of.  Anyways this should be easy, I getting tired of clicking connect everytime I want to use dial-up, plus the minimize option after it connects.  What's the best way to save me two clicks?

Thanks in advance!

First go into My Computer..then..Dial up Adapter..then goto Connections on the menu bar and Settings...At the top of the tab should be three check boxes, One should say prompt for information before dialing, if you've saved your password, and this is not checked then it will not prompt you when you double click the shortcut, it will automaticaly connect.  You will also see a Redial radio box in the middle of the tab, check this to setup auto redial Set your redial accordingly.  I'm not sure, but i think some of the older versions of windows may still need you to minimize the box, but i don't think so.
