how do I restore the system tray internt connect Icon ?

Hi,
I no longer have the internet connected icon showing up in the system
tray, since doing a reinstall, I'v looked in the obvious places, but
no luck - coming from XP it was simple.. tick the box to display tray
icon.. but.. where the heck is it in Vista???
many thanks,
Stu
oh.... also - I dont see a way of re-specifying the "my documents"
folder I'm storing docs/phoyos etc in folders on another partition -
but can't see how to set the current Documents link - to open THAT
folder on "E" drive/partition,
thanks again.

Right click on the Task Bar, Notification Area, check Network, uncheck Hide
Inactive Icons.

In Vista it's just Documents. Go to C:\Users\yourusername\. Then right click
on Documents and select the Location tab. You can then tell it where you want
it located.

Re the missing icons: follow the instructions here (but note the first
comment...) to clear the appropriate registry keys

Re the location of Documents - Brink has a tutorial on that over at
VistaX64.com (I think... he's easy to find though)
