Another querie...why is it all things Microsoft seem inordinatly difficult, even in the smallest and most annoying way??? I sometime use MIM, the latest version to chat to folks...now when I make an alias and place it in the dock, when I sign out / quit the alias diappears...no other app seems to do this....do they do things like this in Redmond just to bother us or are they just inept all rpound?
And oh yeah...can I stop this from happening...?
thank you

Why are you making an alias and putting it in the dock? Just drag the original app into the dock, and it will always be there... no use for an alias unless you put it in a folder or desktop, or anywhere besides the dock.
