losing 'status' view in IE6 window

  reddwarfcrew 19:53 25 Nov 2003

I have the 'status bar' view on in IE6, but if I open another window within the existing window (eg I right click a hyperlink and chose 'open in new window') I lose the status bar view.

Any clues how to stop this from happening?

1) With (only one) IE open, click View, select: Status Bar

2) Right-click on IE's Toolbar and select: "Lock the Toolbars"

3) Hold down the Ctrl key and click the close button (upper right)

4) Right click on the Start Button to open Windows Explorer, click View, select: Status Bar

5) Right-click on Explorer's Toolbar and select: "Lock the Toolbar"

6) Click Tools | Folder Options | View tab

7) Click the "Apply to all folders" button. (Click OK if this gives you another dialogue question)

8) Hold down the Ctrl key and click the close button (upper right)

9) Reopen IE to any page, right-click on a link and select: "Open in New Window" The Status Bar should remain visible.
