" Dear Dennis,

I am an avid reader of your newsletter, and it is definitely the BEST free support publication for users of Windows operating systems -- I recommend Infopackets Gazette whenever appropriate!

I wonder whether you can help me with a problem? I am running Windows 98 (second edition) with IE6 and recently the address bar at the top of the browser screen has disappeared. When I click View -> Toobars -> Address Bar, I cannot get it to return. Any suggestions? "

My response:

I was unable to find a resolution to this problem by searching the Microsoft Knowledge Base.

However, Google pointed me to a TechTV web page which made mention of a "missing" Address Bar which could have been misplaced. The TechTV web site states:

" If your address bar has disappeared from Internet Explorer, right-click on a toolbar and make sure there's a checkmark next to the Address Bar option.

If there is, and if you still can't see the toolbar, try dragging and dropping other toolbars around [at the top of the Explorer Window]. "

The address bar may be shoved to one side. You may need to uncheck 'Lock Toolbars' (View -> ToolBars -> Lock Toolbars) in order to drag any Toolbars at the top of the Window.
