Network Connection Icon in System Tray...(Windows XP)

malcolm
Is there a script available to enable this? The one on Kelley's Korner does not work.

    Go to the properties of which ever network connection you want to show up and on the first screen there is a box that you can put a check in that will enable this.

    Thanks..I am aware of how to set the check box so that it will display. What I want is a script that will automatically perform this after disk imaging. But thanks for the reply!

    Just a thought, why don't you just do this before making your image? But hey, I know how you code monkey's are!

    No offense meant ... some of my best friends are code monkeys.

    Luck to ya!

    Of course I tried that. There are certain settings in Windows XP that won't "stay put" when you take an image. Interestingly enough, that is one of the settings that won't stay. Another setting that won't "stay put" is the Turn Off System Restore setting. But there is a script to turn it off after imaging, which is exactly what I am looking for regarding the Network Connection Icon setting. :)

    Here's a batch file script that you can run for this purpose:

    @FOR /F "DELIMS=" %%? IN ('REG QUERY HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Network\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} /S^|FINDSTR \\Connection$') DO @REG ADD "%%?" /V ShowIcon /T REG_DWORD /D 1 /F>NUL

    (copy to notepad, save as .bat) and you can distribute it as needed).
    or just download from here:

    You may have to logoff then on for the icon to show up.
