Anyone know how to switch ON the status bar in all Explorer windows by default....? Thanks!
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
Apply to All Folders
Close Windows Explorer
Re: Re: How to setup a Statusbar in Explorer
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.
