So you were NOT referring to an actual MONITOR then? I took your question literally. Guess I am not as good a mind reader as IMpatient.

This just goes to show how important it is to pose the question properly. IMpatient should be congratulated for nutting this one out... I would have gone the same way as OtheHill and queried what the devil anyone would want a "monitor" icon for!

Don't regard "why" as insulting or something. The answer often gives necessary background to understanding your situation and helping.

I got a bad reaction to asking "why" on here at one time but with the answer I was able to supply the correct fix.
