    Would some one give me computer help... again... please

    I really have no idea what I'm doing on the computer half the time

    On our old computer when I "X'ed" out of explorer a window would pop up asking me if I wanted to break the connection. It no longer happens.

    Is there a way to make it ask me again? We did finally get it set to disconnect itself (Thanks John and fluff), but I'd really like for that window again...

    Does anyone even know what I'm asking??

    Thanks for any help.

    ummm...2000. I think If it's important I also think that it's Explorer 6.0

    I have to go for a bit, so take your time. I am not in a hurry.

    Thanks so much.

    cali...
    in Internet Explorer, click on Tools in the menu bar, then Options.
    Click on the Connections tab. Your dial up connection should be highlighted in the dial up field at the top of the window. Over to the right of it, click on settings. Down at the bottom under Dial-up settings, click on advanced. Make sure that Disconnect when connection may no longer be needed is checked. You can also check disconnect if idle for...and then set how many minutes you want. Then just click on OK.


    That should fix it for you.
