Customize Your Browser Toolbar


How can I trim down my massive IE toolbar?


This question was answered on October 27, 2006. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

Has your browser toolbar turned into rows and rows of unused buttons? Wouldn't it be nice to do away with them and regain some actual web-browsing space? Or perhaps you'd like to add a button or two for quick access to your favorite features.

With Internet Explorer all you need to do is right click an empty area of the toolbar at the top of your browser and select Customize You'll find a list of options you can add on the left and ones currently there that you can remove on the right.

To add a button simply highlight it on the left-hand list and click the Add button.

To remove a button, highlight it on the right-side list and click Remove.

You can also change the order that buttons appear by moving them up and down the list.

With Firefox you do the same thing: right click the toolbar and choose Customize.

You'll get a list of items that can be added to the toolbar.

Just click and drag the items you want to where you want them on the toolbar.

Play around with the possibilities If you mess up, just click the Restore Default Settings button to put it all back the way it was.
