" After a normal morning boot, the line at the bottom of Internet Explorer disappeared from my screen.

This is the line that shows the URL status, the SSL lock, what's being retrieved, privacy icon, and other useful information. I've tried many approaches, including the Microsoft Support web site to reinstate the line, but with no luck. How can I reinstate this line? "

My Response:

The line at the very bottom of an Internet Explorer window is actually called the Status Bar.

As Jay29 stated, the Status Bar is a very useful part of Internet Explorer: especially the lock icon, because it tells if a web site is secure or not.

The Status Bar can be enabled or disabled by:

  • Load Internet Explorer
  • Click View -> Status Bar

That's it!
