    how do I get bing back on my tool bar as my search engine?

  • James Bruce

    Quick sugggestion: Stop using internet explorer 8, because it is both out of date and standards no-compliant. http://getfirefox.com or http://www.google.com/chrome for a better alternative.

    above suggestion should work,
    also check if you have moved or resized the toolbar in a way that it is not visible anymore.
    then unlock it from view menu > toolbars.
    or select it from the list.

    if all this does not work
    download and install it again,



    Hello, have you check in the manage add-on of explorer? 

    — open internet explorer
    — click on Tools
    — click on internet options
    — click on the programs tab
    — click on manage add ons
    — click on Toolbars and extensions
    — is your toolbar there?
    — if it is disable, enable it

    You could also check to see if your toolbar is hidden and unhide it

    — open internet explorer
    — click on view
    — select Toolbars
    — uncheck lock toolbars
    — make sure that your bing toolbar is checked
    — check lock toolbars
    — restart explorer

    Let us know if it helps….
