    IE 6 Address bar (Windows XP IE6)

    In IE 5 I used to be able to drag from the right side of the address bar to make it smaller, but in IE6 it won't let me. Is there something I'm missing or need to turn on

    Thanks in advance

    Re: IE 6 Address bar (Windows XP IE6)

    IE 6 has a new setting you can see when you right-click on a toolbar called "Lock the Toolbars", which does just that. If this is checked you cannot move or resize the toolbars. Clear the check to re-enable moving and resizing toolbars. Also, in both IE 6 & earlier versions I could only resize Address Bar if it was on same line as Standard Buttons or another toolbar.
