How to Disable or Enable Toolbars in Internet Explorer

Toolbars that are offered my different search engines and web sites can be very useful. However, there may reach a point where these become more of a hindrance than a benefit. You can remove the toolbar by following these steps:

 Internet Explorer window

  1. Click on Start » Control Panel. Select Programs » Uninstall a Program.

    Start menu 

    Uninstall a program
  2. Choose the toolbar you wish to uninstall and click Uninstall/Change.

    Uninstall/Change program

  3. Close the Control Panel.

To turn off a toolbar:

  1. With Internet Explorer open, press the Alt key. This will open the Menu bar.

    Internet Explorer menu

  2. Click the View menu option, then Toolbars.
  3. All of the toolbars currently being displayed will show with check next to it.

  4. To disable the Toolbar, click the toolbar you wish to turn off.
  5. If you are using Internet Explorer 9, you may receive a message asking if you wish to disable the toolbar. If so, click Disable. The toolbar will no longer be displayed.

    Disable Add-on

  6. If there is more than one toolbar you wish to disable, simply repeat the process.
  7. To re-enable or turn the Toolbar back on, simply press Alt to display the Menu bar. Click View » Toolbars. Click on the toolbar to display it again.
