Lost Toolbars

Friday, July 20th, 2007 by | Filed Under: Using The Internet

Lost Toolbars

Are you one of the many who have a toolbar installed on your computer along with your Web browser? For example, along with my Internet Explorer browser, I always use the Google toolbar. Maybe you do the same or perhaps you use another toolbar, such as the versions from Yahoo! or AOL. Either way, if you’re like me, you probably use those toolbars on a very regular basis, right? So, what if you were to lose it? What would you do? Well, let’s check out some of your options!

First, I hope you would work on getting it back! I know my Google toolbar has disappeared before, but luckily, I knew just how to get it back up and running. Do you want in on my little secret too? If you ever lose one of your toolbars, all you have to do (in Internet Explorer) is go to View, Toolbars and make sure the one you want to use is checkmarked. You can do the exact same thing in Firefox, if that happens to be the browser you use. Once your toolbar of choice is selected, it will pop right back up for you.

Now, when it comes back, it might look a little different than you remember it being. If that happens, don’t worry yourself too much. With the Google toolbar, just look for the Settings link and click on that. From there, you can go through everything and reset it back to the way you had it before. With the Yahoo! toolbar, look for the big red Yahoo! icon (it’s a Y with an exclamation point after it), right click on it and choose Change Toolbar Layout or whatever you’d like to do. You can do the same for any other toolbars you may use. When you’re all finished, you’ll have your toolbar back and as a bonus, you’ll know how to find it in case you ever lose it again. Oh yeah!
