I use Earthlink and if I click on the IE icon on my toolbar, a dial-up box appears and I have to enter my password. Then, after dial-up, the IE page appears
However, I never use this method because it does not load the Earthlink Toolbar. I get started by clicking on the Earthlink icon on my toolbar, the connection program runs, the Earthlink toolbar appears and there is a pause while Earthlink checks for email. I then click on Web or Home or Favorites and my Mozilla Firefox browser page appears.
How can I connect Miscrosoft windows Sp Home to Internet Explorer so that all I have to do to dial up is click on the Explorer icon on my desktop?
