Customizing the taskbar

Add Internet Explorer toolbards to your taskbar for faster access to Internet Web sites and the command line.

You can add your Internet Explorer Links toolbar to the taskbar for faster access to these sites.

One toolbar you'll find especially convenient is the Address toolbar. This toolbar enables you to not only access Internet Web sites, but also to run other Windows 2000 commands. For example, you can type the command "cmd" in the Address toolbar to open a Command Prompt window.

To add other toolbars to your taskbar, right click on the taskbar and choose toolbars. You'll see options for adding the Address, Links and Desktop toolbars to your taskbar. In addition, you can create your own custom toolbar to further customize your taskbar.
