    Missing tool (Bars) affter win 8.1 install.


    Hi Friends I used to have a great little app on my original win 8 From a toolbar at the top of the page I could change video and audio formats.....Now its gone. can't find it anywhere.

    Problem 2 I no longer have the toolbar in browser or teltra/bigpond mail that changes font size, has bold and italic underline etc etc just vanished..... Any clues anyone. My browser is internet explorer 11.0.4 Windows 8.1 64bit

    I have no idea, but from what I can see when I look in my own IE there is a menu that says "Tools" if you click it, you will see "Toolbars" you can maybe find your toolbars in there?

    Here is a picture. Hope it helps?

    check what eCh suggest but also when in tool check manage addons ,as they may have been disabled ,or may not be compatible with the browser any more

    then you need to read my last post, where I suggested you to tools/manager addons ,and check the toolbar section

    are you using the desktop IE or the metro start IE app

    you say install windows 8.1 was it an upgrade or a format and full reinstall od 8.1,if full reinstall then you might have to reinstall the toolbar again ,as internet explorer doesn't have a toolbar by default

    So sorry that I couldnt be at help. Do as caperjack says, that is the solution I think. I am also running 8.1 so its strange that you dont have that option. But not so strange if you are in metro, that looks very different.
