lost address bar

  benson68 11:58 19 Nov 2007

I've somehow lost the address bar (in IE6) across the top. All that I'm left with to search is a Google toolbar & my default page Yahoo.
How can I get it back?

Hi,Try, Right click toolbar.Make sure lock the Toolbars is unticked,And on the far left or right there should be a dotted line,left click and drag to the right or left or up or down and see if you can get it back that way,If you can go back and lock the toolbars.

Thanks for that, but all I seem to be able to do is move the available icons around.
I've realised that the file, favourites etc. that used to be across the top have been moved also. I've just got the three rows below the blue title. back, forward, refresh, home, search, history, favourites icons etc. & below them the file, edit, view, favourites, tools & help. The Google toolbar is below these.

still have the menu available, try View>Toolbars> and make sure that "address bar is ticked.

F11 just loses the bulk of icons on show, & I've tried view / toolbars / address bar.
I'm stumped. I can't think what caused me to lose it!

Did you try my suggestion?

Sorry VoG. Didn't realise that you'd posted anything! (new to these forums) When I did open your hyperlink, it looked too complicated!
Tried System Restore no good. Thanks anyway.
No.2 son sorted it. Made sure toolbar wasn't locked (system restore had locked it again) then dragged it down. I'd already tried this, & it didn't work for me!
Thanks folks.
