I just updated windows ME to XP home edition a couple days ago. I'm starting to get used to it but there are a few things i don't understand. 1) There is an area down in the lower right hand side of the Taskbar called the notification area, just to the left of it there is supposed to be a little arrow like button that you can click which will then show you all the hidden inactive icons. The problem is sometimes the arrow is there and sometimes it's not. I'm sure the arrow is supposed to be there all the time. 2) When I start up the computer it takes about 3 minutes to load everything, thats along time, much longer than Windows ME took. Anybody have any ideas on how to fix these two minor problems? Thanks, Freedom1955 Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
