Status Bar

by Barbara J. Feldman on December 17, 2002

I rely on the important information displayed in my browser’s status bar. It tells me the exact URL a link will take me to, and informs me of progress when loading a large web page. With Windows XP and Internet Explorer 6, however, the status bar doesn’t always display. Here’s the fix. With only one instance of Internet Explorer open, click View. Make sure there is a small check mark next to Status Bar. Then hold down the Ctrl key, and close the browser by clicking the X button in the upper right-hand corner. Next go to Start/All Programs/Accessories/Windows Explorer/View. Make sure there is a small check mark next to Status Bar. Last step is Tools/Folder Options/View and select “Apply to all folders.”
