How do I find Internet Explorer "Properties" so that I can format the page to show the "status bar" each time I dial up the internet. The status bar used to always be there and now I have to check the box every time if I want to use the status bar.

I tried that earlier today and got properties, but tht didn't help accomplish my goal, and that was: how can I format my IE to keep the status bar showing every time I dial up?

IE-> View -> check Status Bar.

I don't think thats the one you mean is it? Can you be a bit more specific. Maybe a screen shot would be useful.

When I first started this thread, I thought I could set things up through Internet Explorer properties, but once I found how to get there, that wasn't the answer. All I want is for the status bar to show up every time I get on line. Now I have to click status bar every time because it goes away when I disconnect and dial back up.

The status bar in IE6 on WinXP doesn't remain displayed. If the current IE window has a status bar and you spawn a new window that one won't have a status bar. Here is a fix.

With (only one) IE open, click View and select: Status Bar.
Hold down the Ctrl key and click the close button (upper right).
Open Windows Explorer, click View and select: Status Bar
Click Tools > Folder Options > View tab
Click the "Apply to all folders" button

now there is also a registry fix for this...

START -> RUN -> REGEDIT.
the key you are looking for is in...
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main
Add a NEW STRING VALUE
Call it Show_StatusBar
the value is yes
