Right, I'm trying to make a sweet active desktop. I have a few quesitons... maybe some of you nice people can help! I'm following madmatts tutorial <-- friggin' excellent! Questions... How do I create a link to an actual dial up connection, for example when I click it, it brings up the dial up dialogue? It doesn't work with a normal shortcut because the shortcuts that windows makes to the connection isn't a direct path. It's a long string of text/numbers! How do put the temperatures on the desktop? I guess you use samuarize... whatever. Things like that... is there anything else that takes up less system resources that will tell me the CPU temperature, oh and hdds space left/used? How do I have a small 'notepad' type feature that has the button save to save it as a txt, can it bring up a save as dialogue? That's all for now. I'll probably be back! :happy: Thanks to all of you in advance!
