That says it for Vista, but I remember before upgrading there was an Address bar. But, now, it's gone. How do I get it back?

* Right-click on the taskbar, select Toolbars, and then click Address.
* The word Address will appear on your taskbar.
* Double click it to access it.
* If that doesn't work, your taskbar is locked. You can unlock it by right-clicking on the taskbar again and uncheck Lock the Taskbar.
* You may also need to grab the vertical dotted lines beside the word Address and drag it to the left to make the Address window appear.
I think this must be because you upgraded to SP 3 , Correct? So heres a hack i found that may solve your problem.
It is simply a matter of finding a computer that still has SP2 running and copying the browseui dll(C:\Windows\System32\)from it to your SP3 computer. Put the file in your "C" folder. Okay, here is where its gets a little tricky. The browseui dll file is a system file and is therefore protected whenever Windows is running. That means you cannot just copy the SP2 version over to the SP3 version. You will have to start the SP3 PC in Safe Mode. In fact, I would suggest starting the SP3 PC in Safe Mode with a command prompt.
Here is how you do that:
1. Restart the SP3 computer.
2. When it starts the reboot process and before Windows starts to load, press the F8 key, which will load the Advanced Boot Options Menu.
3. Choose to start in Safe Mode with a Command Prompt option.
4. At the Command Prompt, type this copy command:
xcopy C:\browseui.dll C:\Windows\System32\
5. Reboot the SP3 PC normally.
If all went according to plan, you should now have the option to add the Address Bar to your desktop
