    Taskbar in IE8
    « on: October 14, 2009, 07:08:32 AM »
    I have used the address window in the Taskbar (bottom of screen) for years in many browsers.  I recently installed IE8 on this machine & the address window is not there & is not one of the options in IE8.  Can anyone help ???

    I'm not sure I understand - address window on the taskbar?

      The address taskbar was removed with the arrival of SP3.

      Alternatives can be found here.....

      I'd forgotten all about that.

      Windows Search 4.0 has a toolbar which seems to work similarly to the address toolbar but look bulkier.

        Thanks, everyone. I've downloaded the 3rd party software to provide the address window, but have not had a chance to try it yet.  I didn't know that SP3 disabled this.  I don't recall Microsoft saying anything about it, either.  Imagine that!
