I would like to be able to bypass the IE dial up box and go straight to Google when i want to connect to the internet,the same goes for Outlook Express.
I am running W2000 with a broadband connection.
If this is possible,could some kind person show me how?
Thanks.

I am not sure if this is what you want to do, but...

Get online just as you normally do, and access Google. Click File, Save As, and call it Google and save to the desktop. When you want you Google again, double-click the icon that it made.

An alternate method would be: Manually resize IE so that you can also see a portion of your desktop. Click and hold the blue E in the address bar and drag it to the desktop. Just as before double click the icon for the results.
We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.

This may be completly wrong. But I'm gonna take a stab at it anyway. :thumbsup:

Do you mean that when you click on IE on your task bar, MSN opens?

If so how about making Google your Home Page?

And sorry do not have a clue concerning your Outlook question.

Maybe someone else can help.
