    I am trying to install a new program, and it requires me to turn off any tool bars. I am a true Puter baby, and don't have a clue on how to do this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
    I run Windows 98.

    To turn a toolbar off:


    Select VIEW from the menu bar options.

    Scroll down the list and select the toolbar you want to turn off.


    After you turn off the toolbar, the other toolbars might automatically rearrange themselves. If a toolbar can fit on the line above, it may move up to save screen space.

    Thanks for the quick response..I am a real infant at this..when they refer to closing tool bars... it is not shutting down the entire band at the bottom of the screen? It is shutting down individual programs that are displayed on the band at the bottom of the screen?

    ohhhh. When you said toolbars I thought you meant the address bar, links, etc...But you were talking about the taskbar at the bottom with the individual programs. If you want to get rid of individual programs > simply close them. If you want to hide the taskbar which I don't think you do: right click on the taskbar > properties > select 'Auto-hide the taskbar'

    Hope this helps
