Hello, I'm using WinXP Pro and for some reason when I got to secure sites (https://) it doesn't show a lock box on the lower right hand part of my screen. I was wondering how I could setup my Internet Explorer to do this? BTW I used to have it show on IE and it also had a green progress bar which showed that the page was loading, and when it was done loading it would say done, as well as it would tell me how many more images need to load on the page before the page was done loading.
I appreciate any help
Apologies if this sounds stupid, but are you sure you haven't just got rid of your status bar?
Under the View menu(I haven't got 6 at work so can't be sure it's the same), Status Bar should have a tick next to it. It seems to me, if the padlock, and progress bar, and 'status' messages are not present then the Status bar is missing!
thanks for the replies everyone, I'm sorry that I didn't respond earlier but I never received a notification that there was a response to this thread. Anyway, yes the problem is with the status bar. As moospot said, I too have to keep opening it up to see it. Is there a way to permanently set this status bar to ON?
