    My Google toolbar was just automatically upgraded and the search box is now so small that I can see only four letters or so at a time as I type in a search. I don't see any way to expand it again, in settings or anywhere else. I posted the same question on a Google listserve, but no answer. Am I missing something obvious?

    Howdy,

    With your mouse left click and hold it down .....right next to the GO button and drag it to the right until it's the size you want.

    Let us know if that works

    Thanks much. I think it would work if the search box weren't already almost all the way over to the right. Only the expansion button >> and Settings is to the right of it. The Address box takes up three-quarters of the toolbar space. I tried to contract that a bit but got no double-dagger to do so.

    When you see the double dagger you can move it right or left to size it bigger or small.
