Disabling Internet Explorer Toolbars

Remove Toolbars

            Uninstalling Toolbars

A toolbar can be defined as a row of boxes, which you can find at the top of the application window of your web browser, while you browse the internet. Although these toolbars are designed to provide a convenient and advanced browsing experience to the users, it is often recommended to remove toolbars.  This is because most of the times, toolbars tend to change the home page of your default web browser.

The Internet Explorer add-ons in IE9, IE10 and IE11 are usually loaded if they are compatible with Enhanced Protected Mode. For loading an incompatible add-on, you can always turn off the Enhanced Protected Mode for IE. By doing this, you will be able to load incompatible ad-ons, but this would make your system more open to the malicious software installed in your computer.

If you want to remove toolbars of Internet Explorer and its related add-ons, you can use the following instructions provided by the Windows tech support team.

  • In the first step, you need to open the Internet Explorer and then click or tap on the Tools Menu Bar item followed by the Manage Add-ons option. You can also open the Internet Explorer and click or tap on the Tools Command Bar icon button and then select the Manage Add-ons option.
  • Next, you need to open the Control Panel and then click or tap on the Internet Options icon. Next, you need to click on the Programs tab and Manage Add-ons button.

    Incompatible Ad-Ons

                Removing Toolbars

At any point of time, you can also contact the Windows tech support team to know more about the uninstallation of toolbar and how to fix the common toolbar issues.
  • Now, if you want to enable a Toolbar and Extension Add-on, you need to first select a disabled add-on that you want to enable and then click or tap on the Enable button.
  •  Once you have clicked on this button, you need to tap on the Close button. Now, you would require closing and reopening Internet Explorer for this to take effect.

It is reported that Surface tablets are making a slow but steady growth in the market, posing a clear threat to the competitor products.

Of late, Microsoft released a slew of impressive features to its Windows RT devices including Surface 2. Among these, Microsoft Azure RemoteApp for Surface 2 deserves special attention.

Microsoft Azure RemoteApp for Surface 2

The recently released Microsoft Azure RemoteApp for Surface 2 has gained much applause for Microsoft and garnered numerous reviews in the Microsoft support page. With the help of this app, you can access all your desktop apps such as LOB apps, Office apps, etc directly from the Windows RT devices you have, given that they are published via Microsoft Azure RemoteApp service. You will recognize the significance of this app only when you realize the fact that most of the apps and services you can access via RemoteApp service can’t be accessed directly from your Windows RT device. This is because you can’t install them on your Windows RT device.

When you run RemoteApp programs on your Windows RT device, they will appear as if they are running locally. In fact, they are running on the Microsoft Azure cloud platform. Nevertheless, it does not prevent you from interacting with these programs from your Surface 2 or any other Windows RT devices. The major advantage of being able to access programs via RemoteApp service is that it does not compromise the safety of your corporate data.
