if i could find a way to post a screenshot, i would show you, but by right-clicking on the taskbar you get a menu with XP service pack 2 that includes an address bar. when you put a check in front of "address", a couple sets of dots appear on the taskbar that you can grab and pull in the same fashion as drag and drop. by pulling to the left or right, uncovers an address bar that is hidden.
when service pack 3 came along the address bar was taken away, it (the "address" option)was no longer offered, but many have figured out a way to keep it. the address bar also works with firefox (that is, if you already have the address bar and enter a url in it while using firefox, it will work, IE isn't necessary). i have not tried it with any other browsers, so i can't vouch for them. vista also has the address bar feature (why vista, and not XP?).
is there a way to post a screenshot here at bleepingcomputer?
thanks for the replies.
