    Missing URL Icon

    Getting the Icon back is simple.

    Open Internet Explorer

    Click Tools

    Internet Options

    In Internet Options, click on PROGRAMS tab


    When Window opens click YES

    Close out all windows, then click Explorer again. Icon should have returned.

    IE Links

    MkOnce, I think you are referring to something else. If you want to get rid of the links BELOW the Address Bar, then do this.

    In Explorer goto



    and UNCHECK the LINKS-Should be third one down.

    Is that what you wanted?
