View Full Version : modem noise and quick launch icon size

03-01-2003, 01:37 PM
Senility is setting in. I had to reinstall win xp and I guess I've forgotten how to
1. Silence my modem (that slide in phone/modem options does no good).
2. Make the quick launch icons larger without changing all of the settings in properties, appearance, advanced. If I click the quickview bar and choose large icons, it works but the little icons on the right next to the clock pile atop one another - I know I had this darn thing working withoutb that happening.

Look in Control Panel<>internet options<>connections<>properties.

Choose the Configure option for the selected modem, and uncheck the "enable modem speaker" box.

Shuts it up a treat, even when the little slider is set to max. :)

As for the icon problem, I'm no expert, but as you asked, I dunno!
