RIGHT click on the bottom taskbar, choose "Toolbars", then select "Quick Launch".. IF Internet Explorer isn't there, then RIGHT click "drag" the Internet Explorer icon from your desktop (or the Start Menu), to the Quick Launch area, then release it there.. Create the shortcut there.
Hope this helps.
Help me Obi Wan Kenobi! Anyone know how to restore the internet explorer icon back into the bottom toolbar? This is driving me and my landlady nuts. Please restore peace to the valley with our combined help of the world wide web! She is running windows XP Professional with 1gig of ram and a 80gig hard drive. Everything is running ok except for the mysterious dissappearance of the little internet explorer icon.
Thanks to Cnet and thier friends
