IE Toolbar

Somehow I do not have what looks ot me like a normal toolbar. I have most of
the icons, but somehow I have a addr. bar that is nearly 1/2 screen long. It
is keeping me from getting all the icons I want to display.
I have gone thru a lost of WinXp Help but can't find anything dealing w/this
situation.

I am new to XP so I am not as adepth w/it as w/98. TIA.

So move the address bar to its own line. (r-click Toolbar area and
unlock if needed)

Try right click on a blank area of tool bar and what options do you
have?

Answered in another newsgroup. Please do not send the same
message separately to more than one newsgroup (called
multiposting). Doing so just fragments the thread, so someone who
answers in one newsgroup doesn't get to see answers from others
in another newsgroup. And for those who read all the newsgroups
the message is multiposted to, they see the message multiple
times instead of once (they would see it only once if you
crossposted instead).

If you must send the same message to more than one newsgroup,
please do so by crossposting (but only to a *few* related
newsgroups).

Here's the answer I posted:

"Do you want to get rid of the address bar or make it smaller?

If you want to get rid of it, right-click a blank part of the
task bar, choose Toolbars, and uncheck Address.

If you want to make it smaller, grab the vertical divider bar at
its right and drag it to the left.

If you have trouble with this, the task bar may be locked. In
that case, right click on it and uncheck "Lock the taskbar," then
try again."
