    Hi Peter_CapeTown ,

    First off welcome to the community;)


    Click on view in I.E. and make sure the status bar has a tick along side it.

    Hope this helps you

    Toggle it.
    Tools
    Folder Options
    View (tab)
    Apply to All Folders
    Click OK
    Close Windows Explorer
    Re-open.

    Thanks for the welcome Alan. Merry Xmas! Hehe, thanks for the tip but I actually wanted to know how to get all Explorer Windows to have a status bar by default in Windows XP.
    It's tedious to always switch it on this way every time you start go online etc. Thanks! :)

    You could give this a try.

    open I.E. then open a new window, then close the original window [its important that you close the 1st window], now click on view [in the second open window] and tick status bar, then close the second window.

    Now hopefully it should be enabled on all open windows.


    /me Keeps fingers crossed


    If I have not explained the procedure to well, someone will give the correct way to do it.

    I really hope this helps ;)

    Do what madmatt said. Internet explorer & windows explorer are tied together for this. Set it in windows explorer & IE will happily follow.

    Open Windows Explorer\View\select Status Bar. Then click Tools\Folder Options\View. Then click Apply to all Folders. Click Apply.
