I would like to know why the Taskbar (Tray) Icon has a menu and the other Zonealarm icons that are used as basic program shortcuts do not.
Also, is it possible to have another shortcut ZoneAlarm Icon with the menu that is in the one in the Taskbar (Tray) elsewhere - like on the desktop, for example?
Reason is this: Every so often upon booting up my Computer, the Zone Alarm Icon fails to show up in the Taskbar (Tray). Without that Icon there and it's menu, I have no way of knowing whether ZoneAlarm is loaded and doing it's thing or not.....
When this situation occurs, if I click on a Zonealarm Shortcut Icon, nothing happens - like it's dead. With the Taskbar (Tray) Icon, the Menu gave me way to see if it's running - or also gave me the option to shut it down - which I then can re-start it from a regular ZoneAlarm shortcut Icon. But, when I have no Taskbar (Tray) Icon showing, that is unavailable to me.
I always have to re-boot my Computer to get it back, and it just seems like it would be a lot easier if I had another ZoneAlarm icon with a menu in it that I could check and see if it's running, or shut just ZoneAlarm down and restart it if necessary - without having to re-boot the whole Computer to get it to where I can see that it is working......
Most all other Icons for Programs are the same whether they are in the
Taskbar (Tray) or on the Desktop or in a Folder somewhere - so why is this one Particular Icon so unique that if you lose it, your stuck and out of business???
I tried to Copy and Paste the Taskbar (Tray) Icon to the Desktop, but it
does not allow that to happen. How do you copy a Taskbar (Tray) Icon to somewhere else anyway???
If I had another Icon like the One in the Taskbar (Tray) that has the same menu in it, then this would not be a problem, unless it also failed to load at startup. Seems to me there should be an easy solution to this situation.
I was going to ask this in a Previous related Thread, but the few I saw that were close to this subject were closed.
Thanks in advance for any help or advice regarding this thread......
