How to customise the browser toolbar in Internet Explorer

Ensure the commands you use are displayed

The toolbars at the top of your web browser allow you to access actions such as reloading a page, stopping a webpage from loading or even printing a page. It is relatively easy to customise these toolbars to ensure actions you use frequently are displayed and those that you don't often use are removed. We've already shown you how to customise the browser toolbar in Firefox 4, but it's slightly different for Internet Explorer users. Here's how.

Step one
In the Command bar area (below the navigation bar) , right-click and select Add or remove commands.

Step two
From the right-hand side of the window that appears, select the command you want and press Add. You can adjust where on the Command bar the icon appears by clicking on the icon in the right-hand list and using the Move Up or Move Down buttons. You can also remove by highlighting them in the right-hand list and clicking on Remove. When your have finished adjusting your icons, press Close and your changes will be reflected in the browser.
