Solved Bottom tool/taskbar now missing when in IE

I'm running 8.1 on an HP desktop, with IE version 11.0.2.

Some time in the past week or so, the bar at the bottom of the page when I am in a browser session, launched from the desktop, no longer appears. It's the one that usually shows the Connection, Safe to Eject, my Norton status, Volume icons, date/time, etc. I use automatic Windows updates, so I'm kind of assuming it was something there that did it...but don't know for sure.

All I want to know is How Do I Get It Back? I especially need that volume control icon, so I can mute all the ads when I open a news video on Yahoo, Bing, or MSN.

This bar shows just fine when I'm looking at the Desktop screen, just not in the browsers.

Thanks for your assistance.

Hello way2ob2se,

It sounds like you may be in fullscreen mode. If so, pressing the F11 key will toggle it off/on.

Hope this helps. :)

Sheesh, who'd a thunk it?? I'd ask how you know all this stuff, but I personally believe that you are a magic wizard. One key press and I'm back where I want to be. Thank you so much!
