You seem to have applied a new theme to Windows
by MarkFlax Forum moderator / November 21, 2006 7:23 PM PST

Your first image differs from your 2nd because of different themes. What happens if you revert back to the previous theme?

Also, are you talking about the Address Bar just in Windows Explorer, or have you lost it in Internet Explorer as well?

acr45, Right click your Toolbar and unlock it. Now you should see a perforated verticle line to the left of the word "Address". Place your cursor over that perforated verticle line until it changes to a 2 sided arrow then hold your left mouse button down and drag downwards or left or right untill the Address Bar window appears then release the left mouse button. Now you can right click the Toolbar again and lock it.

Still missing my tool bar
by mis2ko / November 24, 2006 4:20 AM PST

It got lost when I loaded Norton 2007 and I can't get it back. When I right click on the tool bar, the tool bar is not locked, but the Address bar does not perforated verticle line . I am running Explorer 2006.

mis2ko, If the Toolbar is unlocked there should be either a perforated vertical line of a solid line (looks like a handle) to the left of the word Address. Then follow the same instructions as I posted in my previous reply.

OS Win XP SP2-windows explorer does not have an address bar
by aalope2001 / August 24, 2007 4:04 AM PDT

Hello all,

This problem has completely stumped me and I have finally decided to post the problem because I can not correct this problem with all my experience and even with multiple attempts with google. So here is the problem: Windows Explorer does not have an address bar and I have already restored all file setting to the default settings/moved from classic back to XP mode and back. I have of course checked the locked tool bar and verified the address bar is checked (also check and unchecked multiple times). I have checked IE thinking IE7 might have some control over this setting. I will more than likely reload the system, but wanted to see if there might be a quick fix.

I cannot tell you how much you saved me from more grief since yesterday and today. You provided me with the information I needed. I only wish that I had not gone threw signing up for all of the other antispyware site earlier. I know now to take my time when I'm struggling with technical issues.

If I was there with you, I'll give you a BIG kiss!!


Thank you.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
