    Sometimes either by installing new software or accidentally dragging the toolbar somewhere, the Yahoo! Toolbar can be dragged off the visible area of Internet Explorer.

    Examine your IE toolbars for any chevrons like this, ">>". These indicate hidden controls.

    Click on each set of chevrons in turn, looking for the Yahoo! Toolbar.

    When you find the toolbar, click on the thin vertical bar or vertical series of dots in front of the big red Y! and drag it down and to the left so that it is visible again.

    If you do not see this bar, your IE toolbars are locked: select "View Toolbars - Lock the toolbars" to unlock your IE toolbars
