I have just bought a new Sony Vaio E5 laptop, it has windows 7 installed, with a preinstalled Bing toolbar, I just want to put the "custom icons" on the top toolbar as I do on my windows XP laptop, how can I alter it so that I have a toolbar on the top where I can add the little icons like ebay, pcadvisor, facebook, youtube, yahoo, hotmail, etc., etc., (I use yahoo toolbar on my Windows XP laptop which is great for adding the little custom ap. icons) thanks LAPTOPDUNCE

You need to tick Favourites bar by right clicking any toolbar at the top. Once the favourites bar is showing at the top, right click any icon showing on it, then select Customise title widths, I select Icons only. You can disable the Bing toolbar if you want.
