How to Restore the Internet Explorer Address Bar

By Chappy Sinclair

Internet Explorer is the default Web browser for Windows. It is free to use and included with every version of Windows. Internet Explorer can be used to browse the Internet, watch streaming video, download files and view photos. The address bar is a small blank space used to enter website addresses (known as "Uniform Resource Locators" or URLs). The address bar can be moved around Internet Explorer or removed entirely. Replacing it and locking it is a simple process.

Step 1

Open Internet Explorer. Click the "View" button and select "Toolbars."

Step 2

Place a check next to "Address Bar." Click "OK."

Step 3

Right-click "Address" and click "Lock the Toolbar." Click "Address" and drag the address bar to the spot you want it on Internet Explorer.
