IE6 Missing Toolbar Buttons

  Noels 22:12 07 Sep 2003

Help please I have somehow lost?? A least the back/forward and refresh toolbar buttons and now have Cut Paste Encoding and Realcom buttons.
How do I restore Toolbar to its original format.
Have tried View Toolbars etc but no luck. Help would be appreciated. Regards Noels

Do you have a double arrow to the right of your toolbar? If so, click it and it will reveal the missing buttons. When you have more buttons than can be phsically displayed then the most recently used ones will show.

If not then right click a blank part of the toolbar and select Customize. From here you can add/remove buttons to your own requirements.

phsically = physically

I'm sorry to be so long replying but:-
I have followed all your suggestions. I have also uninstalled and reinstalled W98 SE, Redownloaded IE6, used scanreg/fix and scanreg/restore and searched everywhere but to no avail. The Back Forward, Restore etc Toolbar has completely gone and has been replaced by a Cut, Copy, Paste, Encoding, toolbar?? When I right click on a page I get a drop down-menu which gives the active commands from the toolbar but its not as convenient as an active toolbar. Any further suggestions would be appreciated.
regards Noels

Right Click the TOOLBAR.

Select Customise.

You can add / remove buttons and change their order here.

Have tried that but as far as I can see when I go to customise there are only certain options, which are only the buttons on this my present toolbar. They don't include the options, Forward, Back, Refresh etc from the missing toolbar. Unless I'm being thick and there is another way to include more buttons?
Getting desperate any help gratefully received.

Do you have two columns of button - Available and Current?

Whats in Available list?

  Noels 10:13 08 Sep 2003

No as far as I can see there is just the one toolbar. No Available and Current unless I'm not looking in the right place? It looks to me as if my present toolbar has come from another programme.
As far as I know all I did last evening was to visit the BBC website to listen to an excerpt from the Proms. This appeared to open up "Realcom" along with this new toolbar and at the same time the original toolbar vanished.
All the best Noels

Noels, Have you got View at the top? If so try View\Toolbars\standard buttons (so that standard buttons is ticked). This should bring up the missing toolbar. Then download and run Adaware from lavasoft (or similar programme) to see if a programme is messing with your browser.
