Hi there;

As in the image, attached, in IE 8(latest), I already used google toolbar and pressed enter, google page gave me the results but the toolbar dropdown is still there opened, even I select the expression, it stays. What I am doing always is, researching through toolbar at this point by pressing enter and it's done but it becomes frustrating. What to do?

Best regards.

I recommend you just use the search field in the standard address bar instead of the Google toolbar.  

Save some space on your screen!  just set the search engine to Google.   See attached picture.

Where it says "google" in my picture is where you type the search.  If you see "Bing" there, then click the drop down arrow ... then it gives you the option to change your search engine, so you can put Google there.

Damn, after first installation IE 8., I don't like that search bar, because it shows the bing results, so I disabled or maybe uninstall from local policies or maybe a reg. fix. I haven't tried for "click the drop down arrow".

So, this question is forked, how can I have my search bar of IE back? or is there fix for google toolbar?
:)

Regards.

Hi jazzIIIlove

Show/Hide search bar in IE7 and IE8 using *.REG script or manually in Regedit:

If you want my personal opinion, uninstall the google toolbar, hide the search box, set your home page to google.com, and disable searching from the address bar in Internet Options > Advanced tab.  Set your google.com home page preferences to open links in results in a new tab.  I believe you will find it just as easy or easier than a little cramped search box.
