How To Add A Url Address Bar To The Taskbar

You can add an Internet URL Link bar to your Windows XP taskbar. Doing so will let you type in URLs and launch Web

pages without first launching a browser. It will also let you launch some native Windows XP applications in much the

same way as you would via the Run menu (so you could type in calc to launch the calculator or mspaint to launch Microsoft Paint.

Here's how you add the Link bar:
1. Right-click on the taskbar, select Toolbars, and then click Link.

2. The word Link will appear on your taskbar.

3. Double click it to access it.

4. 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.

5. To customize the link, right click it and select properties.

6. On the properties screen, click General tab and change the name.

7. On the web document tab, change the link. You can also change the Icon

NOTE: You may also need to grab the vertical dotted lines beside the word Link and drag it to the left to make the Link window appear.
