In have an internal modem.   I can umplug it (turn it off)  but there must be a command to do that.   I have just started using win95.

Thanks

When you connect to a dial-up networking connection (such as the kind most often used by us home-users to connect to the internet) then you get an icon down in the bottom right corner of the screen - it looks like two old green-screen terminals talking to each other.  Double-click on that icon and you'll get a box in the middle of the screen - click the "Disconnect" button.

Bingo!

:) Hope this helps!
