Hi!

I need to restore my backward and forward buttons at the top up
my window. Also, I lost my address menu there as well. Could you
help me?

Thank you for responding,

If You Mean In Your Browser, Which One?
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / September 7, 2008 3:28 AM PDT

Internet Explorer? If IE, IE 6, IE7, or IE8 Beta?

Which operating system? W98? W2000? XP? Vista?

In the meantime, taking a guess that you may be in "full screen" mode, try pressing the F11 key. If that doesn't fix it and you're using IE6, then try the steps below:

1. Click View, point to Toolbars, click Standard, and then select the Standard toolbar check box is selected. If Standard toolbar is already selected, go to step 3.
2. Click View, point to Toolbars, and then click Customize.
3. Click Front in the Available toolbar buttons list, and then click Add.
4. Click Back in the Available toolbar buttons list, and then click Add.
5. Click Close.

Hope this helps.

Back and forward button and address problem
by dorightok / September 7, 2008 2:10 PM PDT

Hi!

Thank you for responding. I am using Microsoft Mil 2000 with
Internet Explorer. Does that give you the information you need
to solve this problem?

Did You Try My Suggestion...? And....
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / September 8, 2008 1:48 AM PDT

No, the information you gave isn't really correct..

1. There is no "Windows Mil 2000".. There is either a Windows Millenium Edition... OR... a Windows 2000. Both are separate and distinct. Windows Millenium Edition is a retail version while Windows 2000 was generally used more as a corporate Windows version although W2000 can also be used by retail customers. I'll guess that you have the older Windows Millenium Edition, also known as Windows ME.. If that's the case, you've got a computer which is 6+ years old.. Correct?

2. You still didn't tell us which version of Internet Explorer you're using.. To find the IE version, open Internet Explorer, then click on "Help" in the upper left corner, choose "About Internet Explorer".. The version will be displayed..

And assuming any of the above is true, we still need to know if you tried the steps I gave.

Hope this helps and let us know more.

Backward and forward buttons running. Need address window
by dorightok / September 8, 2008 2:49 PM PDT

Hi!

Thank you for the info. I finally was able to create
my forward and backward buttons. But now I need to
create an address window at the top of my page so
I can type in web addresses to go to.

I am using Windows ME and my Internet Explorer is
the 5.50.4134.0100 version. Does that help?

Thank you,

RIGHT Click On The Toolbar Area At The Top...
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / September 9, 2008 12:23 AM PDT

, then select "Navigation Toolbar" or "Toolbar", then "Navigation Toolbar".. Unfortunately, I don't have the old IE 5.5 version that you have but the Toobar options should be found by RIGHT clicking on a blank area in the upper toolbar area.

Hope this helps.

Missing address bar
by dorightok / September 9, 2008 1:41 PM PDT

Hi!

Thanks. I'll give that a try. Also, how do I get rid
of an unwanted spyware pop-up blocker on my home screen?
The home screen is where I have my address icons.

Thanks,

'unwanted spyware pop-up blocker '.. What??
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / September 10, 2008 1:46 PM PDT
In reply to: Missing address bar

Is this a popup blocker that you put there, or something that you didn't put there and is spyware?? Sorry, but you lost me there..

On Windows ME, have you tried running a program like "SuperAntiSpyware" and "Spybot Search and Destroy" to clean out the spyware? If not, please do. Unfortunately, Windows ME is such an old operating system, there aren't many good antispyware programs available for it. I recommend downloading, updating, then running SuperAntispyware first. Here are the link:

SUPERAntispyware Removal Tool

?Spybot Search & Destroy? Spyware Removal Tool

Hope this helps.

Hi!

Thank you for the info. That SUPERAntispyware removal tool
is a real benefit to have.

Address bar

In reply to: Thanks Grif

Hi!

I am still having problems restoring my address bar.
I am using Windows ME version 5.50. I've tried
a number of online mentoring instructions but with
no success. My toolbars' address bar has a check next
to it but I still have no address bar. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

dorightok

Try This
by Tufenuf / September 13, 2008 2:08 PM PDT
In reply to: Address bar

dorightok, If I recall from quite a few years ago there should be what looks like a verticle handle either to the left or the right of the word Address. Move your cursor (pointer) over that handle till it turns into a 2 sided arrow then hold your left mouse button down and try dragging to the right or downwards untill the Address bar appears the release the left mouse button.

Hi!

Tufenuf, I gave it a try but no visible vertical
handle left or right of "Address". There must be
a solution to this problem.

Thank you,
