Go into View at the top of IE, then Toolbars & tick Address Bar.

What you might want to do is first open IE and then view - toolbars - address bar. Make sure that the address bar is ticked. Good luck!

you may have only two bars showing,one with file edit view ect,then one below with back refresh home ect.move your cursor to the bottom of these till it turns to an arrow and drag the line down to put the address bar in a separate box.

is click and grab the little bar that's immediately to the left of the word "Address"...

You can then either;

Drag the bar to the left and watch the address bar grow big enough to write in,


Drag the bar down, so it's on it's own line.

I think what has happened is that you have got the address bar on the same line as the standard button toolbar. If they are sharing the line something has to give, and the address bar has ended up shrunken in length.

Hope this helps,

Thanks all

None of the above worked, so I tried a system restore and that did the trick.
don't know how it happened, but all is well now, .......... Thanks
