How Do I Turn Add-ons Back on for Internet Explorer?

Internet Explorer now offers add-ons that let users have a more customized browsing experience. Theese add-ons offer users quick access to their favorite websites and reference materials, shorten the process of adding new material to their blogs on LiveJournal, and much more. Users can also turn add-ons on and off by clicking the "x" next to each one. The add-on then becomes hidden from view so it doesn't continue to take up space in the toolbar. If you've turned one off, turning it back on is easy.
