Microsoft Explorer tool bars

I have the new version of IE and it is quite confusing.
I dont have a "History" toolbar, nor a "Refresh" toolbar.
Is there any way to bet these tolbars or do I need to go back to the previous version of IE?

Huh?

In reply to: Microsoft Explorer tool bars

Maybe you better explain what you consider to be a toolbar. Or better yet, do the even smarter thing, and dump IE in favor of something a bit more secure, like Mozilla Firefox or Opera. The less you use IE, or anything based on it, the safer your system is.

Try one or both of the browsers I suggested. Both are free, so you can keep the one you like best, or both.

there is an area where you can select to get different toolbars and various add / remove stuff. Personally I didn't like IE7 so I went back to IE6. I always use IE, never had any problems or virus or spyware stuff. And for me, anyway, IE7 seemed to slow down my system. As far as I'm concerned its a "Beta".
Good luck,
Eddie

What is the best way to remove IE7 and go back to IE6? I liked IE6 much better. I dont want to lose any settings or info such as "favorites" etc.
I am using WIN XP Home SP2
Thanks in advance

You can click start/control panel/add & remove programs, locate IE7 and remove/uninstall it. IE6 will automatically return. As far as your ?favorites? is concerned, they will still be there. However, if your concerned and want to make sure you don?t lose them, then do the following "first" and then uninstall IE7: With the internet open, click File/Import & Export, ?Welcome to Import/Export Wizard? opens, click ?next?, select ?export favorites?, click next, on the next ?screen?, ?Favorites? will be highlighted, click next, there will be a ?dot? in ?Export to a file or Address?, and a default location will be listed, something like: C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator (or your user name)\My Documents?, be extra sure to make note of the location or change it to whatever you want by clicking on ?browse?, afterwards click on next, click ?Finish?, ?Successfully Exported Favorites?, click OK. When you have IE6 back, if your favorites are not there, then basically do the previous procedure, but now your going to ?Import your Favorites?, and if you changed the ?default? location then you will need to ?browse? to where they are so that you can import them. By the way, the name of the file that is created is called ?Bookmark.htm?. You may want to create this file from time to time, just to have it.
Post back if you have any additional issues.
Good luck,
Eddie

I also prefer IE 6

In reply to: ie toolbars

I went back to IE 6 because I lost auto fill when I went to 7.
