Hi every one,
Can anyone tell me how I can make Opera connect to my ISP when I double click the icon?
With Firefox or IE I just double click the icons and the "connection box" pops up. At the moment I have to start Firefox wait until it connects to the internet, then start Opera and then close Firefox....phew! I'm sure there must be an easier way, but I can't seem to figure it out. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi lulubelle.
See the article below.
Making the required changes in your dial up settings "may" effect the way IE logs on.
It's been so long since I've used dial up I honestly don't remember. :thumbsup:

Alternatively, you can connect to the internet manually, then open your browser. This is what I do. I have a shortcut to my internet connection on my desktop. I never let anything automatically connect.
