    Hello to all,

    I share my Internet connection with my son. I'd like to have the Taskbar on his computer show the Local Area Connection icon ( the two little monitors side by side ) the same as mine does, but I've forgotten how to do that. Any help is greatly appreciated !

    Thanks in advance,
    Pete C.

    Hi Pete C.

    Control Panel > Network Connections to show your Network Connections
    Right click on a Network Connection and select Properties
    On the General tab
    Place a check mark in: Show icon in notification area when connected

    Let us know if that works for you or not.
