Hi ya guys

IE6 wont let me keep my status bar, the thing at the bottom with the loading bar so I know my slow old dial up is working. I always have to click view> status bar. It wont stay put for next time I open a secondary page, really perturbed.

Hi dergib - a tip on setting the Status bar that GF gave me along time back :).


With (only one) IE window open, click View and select: Status Bar.

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

Open Windows Explorer (NOT IE) , click View and select: Status Bar

Click Tools > Folder Options > View tab

Click the "Apply to all folders" button.
