    Google Toolbar in W 8.1 x64


    Hi

    I cannot get this to show in IE11, I cannot even get a tick to show when I go to View/Google Toolbar.

    I have tried the supposed fix of unchecking the settings in Tools/Compatibility View Settings and Google Toolbar is enabled in Tools/Manage Addons.

    Any advice appreciated.

    Thanks

    Daniel

    Hi

    Google toolbar works on my W7 PC with IE11, so it must be a W8.1 thing.

    Cheers

    I went to the Google Toolbar address in IE 11 and saw this:

    Google Toolbar is not available for this browser

    HI

    Yes I saw that when I tried to reinstall Google Toolbar on my W8.1 PC, but on my W7 PC I had Google Toolbar
    installed on IE10 and when I upgraded my browser to IE11 it still works.

    It is a pity MS did not check that Google Toolbar worked before they made changes, all this has accomploished is to drive me to Google Chrome browser after resisting for years but I need the search facilities of the Google Toolbar and that is available with Google Chrome through their address bar searching.

    But I have just thought of a way round this and still use IE11, I'll give it a go.

    Cheers

    I have a feeling it is a deliberate change to make it NOT work.

    I agree, it would be okay if BING was actually useable as a search engine....

    I wonder how I get "Translate Website" up in IE11, does MS have an equivalent?

    Cheers
