How can I install "address bar" in Explorer 7.  In previous versions of Explorer it just loaded automatically.

Thanks.  Ziggy

There is an option in Internet Explorer 7 to reset the settings.

It's under tools | Internet Options | Advanced.

The button to reset is at the bottom of the dialog.

I'm not sure if this will solve your problem, but it is worth a try.  This will get rid of any garbage.

If the above doesn't solve it, here's an interesting possibility that I found:

I did the reset and also tried the suggestions in the link.  Unfortunately, neither worked.  I still have no address bar.

I think that orangutang might be onto something there.

If you download that REG file and just execute it, then it may solve your problem.  You might want to make a backup of your registry file first though.

Here is what the REG file looks like.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\CommandBar]
"Enabled"=dword:00000001


Also try this procedure too if you have a lot of bookmarks.  Moving the bookmarks out of Internet Explorer into a HTML file will make IE perform better.

Never mind, I don't think that'll work.

I believe that it might be a registry entry, but not that registry entry.

Instead of "CommandBar" it might be something like "AddressBar".

I'll investigate this later this evening if no other expert answers this.

I found a Microsoft KB article about the Missing Address Bar, but it is for IE6 not IE7.

It might still be the same procedure.  It's worth a look.

Have you tried reinstalling IE?

Go to Control panel, and go to the Windows components button.

uncheck Internet Explorer.

Click next to uninstall.

Then go to http://www.microsoft.com/ie  to get a new copy of Internet Explorer 7

Hope this works.
