You can add an Internet URL address bar to your Windows XP or Windows Vista taskbar. Doing so will let you type in URLs and launch Web pages without first launching a browser. It will also let you launch some Windows XP or Windows Vista applications in much the same way as you would via the Run menu (so you could type in notepad to launch the notepad or mspaint to launch Microsoft Paint). Here’s how you add the address bar:

1. Right-click anywhere on the taskbar, select Toolbars, and then click Address.

2. The Address bar will appear on taskbar of your computer.

3. Type any web address & then click enter, to go that address or you can also select the recently opened site(saved in internet browser’s cache) by clicking the arrow pointing downward on the right side of address as you often do on your internet browser.

4. You can also adjust the size of address bar by dragging the vertical lines visible on the taskbar to adjust the size to your requirement and if the vertical lines are not visible on the task bar, then your taskbar is locked. You can unlock it by right-clicking on the taskbar again and uncheck “Lock the Taskbar”.
