    Search From Address Bar (6.0)

    When I search from the address bar I want IE to open the search pane on the left and then show the first 6 or so sites on the right. I have IE options set to "Display results and go to the most likely site. Recently, when I search from the address bar it just opens one page with a list of sites. I know there are hijackers that can mess with your settings but this is on my work pc so I won't be able to do any tweaking. I'm just wondering if there is another setting that got changed somewhere that would cause search to change. It's one of those annoying things....

    TIA

    It sounds as if one of your registry settings may have coime "unstuck". Can you try switching your search setting in Internet Options to another setting - and then switching it back? Perhaps you could carry out a token search with the different setting enabled as well. HTH

    Re: Search From Address Bar (6.0)

    Thanks Unkamunka. Is there more than one place to set search settings in IE? Can anyone else search from the address bar and have IE open the Search panel on the left with icons for the first 6 or so on the right? I know I used to be able to do it - but suddenly I can't search that way from my desktop and notebook at home AND from my desktop at work. Was I dreaming? Or is it possibly the way IE 6 works?

    You do seem to be right. Unless the choice is set to "Do not Search", the results are all the same. The basic choices for Search in Control Panel| Internet Options (also available from the IE menu bar Tools) haven't seriously changed since IE4. I'm now behind the XP SP2 configuration (aka IE6 SP2). Once, however, choices in Search engines from IE itself began to be phased out, I switched to searching from the Google home page. HTH
