Hello and thanks to all that have been working on the connectivity problem.

I use a 2 montor (19" CRTs) set up. When I place desktop icons on each monitor they will default all back to monitor #1 upon restart. How can I keep the icons where I place them?

Thanks all.

Hi Terry - I have never used a dual monitor system myself but I came across this article when researching your problem. What you are looking for is about 2 thirds of the way down the list...."Desktop icons moving to primary monitor":

hope that answers your question,

I did a search for EZDesk (the posted link would not work) and read some of the results.
Thanks

May I respectfully suggest that "Probably an easy fix" is not a very good subject for a posting? The idea of putting in a subject is to give readers and searchers a little clue as to what the topic is of the post. The subject should give a short description of the problem addressed if at all possible.
