Setting Phone Dialer’s Options

Phone Dialer has a few options you can use to configure your phone dialing. For example, if you have multiple modems or multiple lines on your phone, you can tell Phone Dialer which ones to use. To work with these options, select Edit, Options to display the Options dialog box. You use the controls in the Lines tab, shown in Figure 1, to configure the lines that Phone Dialer uses for calls and conferences:

Preferred Line for CallingActivate either Phone or Internet to set the default call types that Phone Dialer uses when you initiate a call.
Line Used ForUse the Phone Calls, Internet Calls, and Internet Conferences lists to choose the line you want to use for each type of call. If you have multiple modems attached to your computer, choose the modem you want to use in the Phone Calls list. You should leave both Internet Calls and Internet Conferences set to <Auto-Select> to allow Phone Dialer to choose the appropriate line.

Figure 1. Use the Lines tab in the Options dialog to configure the lines that Phone Dialer uses for calls and conferences.


You use the controls in the Audio/Video tab, shown in Figure 2, to configure Phone Dialer’s sound and video options:

Sound SettingsClick this button to open the Sounds and Audio Devices property sheet. This is the same as double-clicking Control Panel’s Sounds and Audio Devices icon.

Quick Connections with Speed Dial

Phone Dialer is certainly handy, but it becomes downright useful when you take advantage of the Speed Dial feature. If you have numbers that you call frequently, add the numbers to the Speed Dial list to make them accessible with just a couple of mouse clicks.

Follow these steps to add a number to the Speed Dial list:

1.
Pull down the Speed list and click Edit Speed Dial List (or select Edit, Speed Dial List). The Edit Speed Dial List dialog box appears.

2.
Click Add to display the Speed Dial dialog box.

3.
Use the Display Name text box to type a name for the Speed Dial entry.

4.
Use the Number or Address text box to type the phone number, IP address, or computer name that you want associated with this Speed Dial entry.

5.
In the Dial As group, activate Phone Call, Internet Call, or Internet Conference, as appropriate.

6.
Click OK. Phone Dialer adds the new Speed Dial item to the Entries list.

7.
Repeat steps 2–6 to add other Speed Dial list entries.

8.
To make changes to an entry, select it in the Entries list and click Edit.

9.
To change the order of the Speed Dial list items, select an item in the Entries list and then click either Move Up or Move Down.

10.
When you’re done, click OK.

Tip

You can also add a Speed Dial list entry on the fly. When you initiate a call, the active call window has an Add to Speed Dial icon . Click this icon to display the Speed Dial dialog box.


To place a speed dial call, you have three choices:

  • In the Speed Dial branch of the Phone Dialer window, click the Speed Dial entry and then click Speed. Alternatively, double-click the Speed Dial entry.

  • Pull down the Speed button and click the Speed Dial entry.

  • Select Phone, Speed Dial, and then select the Speed Dial entry in the submenu that appears.
