Windows Vista desktop question

10 posts in this topic

I bought a new laptop the other night.

It's got Windows Vista Home Premium.

I was wondering if there's a setting on the desktop so the icons will change to whatever HSOforum they're a shortcut for.

On my XP based computers, I've got the HSO icon for the FM shortcut.

Is there a setting I can change, or am I going to be looking at 10-12 "e" icons?

Mine do that automatically so I haven't needed to find a solution to that.

Not sure, I don't really use shortcuts like that. You can find a lot of those answers if you go to microsoft dot com/support though.

What I did was just go to the HSOforum and right-click and save a small picture that identifies the HSOforum and you can change the icon to that picture. It might take a little trial and error.

I honestly have never known where those icons come from. For example, my link to this site in my favorites folder has an icon that is a black square with the red letters HSO inside. I have assumed that the HSOforum installed the icon to my system when I visited or when I created the link in my favorites folder.

I never shut down my browser grin

I currently have 10 tabs (sites) open.

That's pretty much what I do dtro. I also have the Comcast tool bar installed. You can put shortcuts on there and FM is the first on on there. You gotta love IE 7 though with the tabs so you don't have 20 browsers open.

I have not used IE for a long time. I like FireFox much better for tabbed browsing. IEs tabbed browsing seems too clunky to me.

Try doing a right-click on a blank area of the desktop, then click view, and then select classic.
