I have a laptop that has an I as a button for geting on the internet, I was wondering how do I program it so that instead of Netscape coming up when I click it Yahoo mail will come up when I click it?

It sounds like you want to change your homepage...correct?

Well assuming you are using Internet Explorer,
Go to Tools/Internet Options/General Tab/Homepage.
Then enter the complete URL (address) of Yahoo Mail in the space provided.Click OK.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

Here's an example
Windows XP
The steps for configuring keyboard drivers in Windows XP are different than in other operating systems. Use the following steps if you have already downloaded and installed the latest HP keyboard driver for Windows XP.

What operating system do you have? We have been assuming Windows XP, but from your most recent response it would appear as though you have a different one.

I found this on the web concerning the missing side bar in control panel. There are a few fixes mentioned.
