Enable the Form Fill Button in Windows Live Toolbar

Thursday, March 29th, 2012 by | Filed Under: Using The Internet

Robert from Charlotte NC writes:

When I had IE7, including Windows Live Toolbar, there was a feature called “Form-Fill”. I lost it when I updated IE to version 8. Is there any way to get it back?

Hi Robert, and thanks for the great question. The Form Fill feature on the Windows Live Toolbar can be very helpful so, you’ll be glad to know that you can get it back in a few short steps.

Open Internet Explorer. Click the arrow next to the Windows Live Logo, and then click Toolbar Options.


On the left side of the window click Install Buttons.

On the right side of the window find the button Form Fill, click on it and then click Download and Install. Allow the Form Fill button to completely install. Click OK when it is finished.

Turn Form Fill Button On or Off

Click the arrow next to the Windows Live Log and select Toolbar Options. In the left pane, click Display. Find Form Fill on the right side of the widow and check the box to turn Form Fill on, or remove the check from  the box to turn Form Fill off.

We hope this tip has been helpful for you and you now have the Form Fill button on your Windows Live Toolbar.

    That’s good advice. How about IE9? Where can Fill Forms be found in IE9.

    Rita didn’t answer the question – it was for IE8 not Windows Live!

  3. Jim McQuillen says:

    I followed you advice but when I tried to open the buttons it said they were unavailable. What now? I’m using the form filler on the Google taskbar, is that giving me the same results? I ask because a number of sites don’t get filled in when I tell them to.
    Thanks for looking, Jim
