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

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 ;)

Good grief Charlie Brown
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.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
