IE 11 Hide Address bar but keep Forward and Back buttons or disable typing in address bar

Q: IE 11 Hide Address bar but keep Forward and Back buttons or disable typing in address bar

Hi
I would like to hide the address bar but still be able to use the forward and back buttons and some other features. I have add the rege key to remove nav bar but that removes everything. Im using this in a citrix xendesktop environment.
I will deploy a site but don't want the users to navigate to other sites. For instance go to our intranet site but stop them from going to our firewall gui page. So when they click on links I wont them to be able to go back to the previous page.
Any ideas?

Preferred Solution: IE 11 Hide Address bar but keep Forward and Back buttons or disable typing in address bar

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi,
It's designed by default, and we cannot only hide address bar. Thanks for your understanding.

A:address bar, refresh, forward/back buttons NOT WORKING

Hi,

Welcome to TSF!!

I would just like to say that this seems like a big problem. I have found a couple of different places where people are having the same problem.

I have found a solution that I would like you to try as a test. If you would open up terminal (Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal) Once that opens I would like you to type:
Code:
firefox -safe mode
This should start FF in safe mode with all extensions and plugins disabled. See if your navigation buttons are able to be used from here.

Cheers!

Hi,
I have a problem for over a week now that when I type a certain website in URL address bar it directs me to a different website.
I tried looking at the lmhosts - seems ok.

I also tried going back to a restore point of a time when I didnt have the problem, didnt help.

I would thank you very much for trying to advice me.

A:typing web address brings me to a diiferent address in explore and mozilla

There are a few reasons for this.

First sometimes the site you are looking to visit isa "front" site and is for the most part fake. It is created to get search engines to list it high on the list of returned results.
When you try to use the search link to go to the site you get redirected to the site the creators/owners actually want you to visit. There are various reasons they may want this, but I will not go into the why for now other than to tell you it usually involves visitor counts and or subscriptions translating into money.

Second this is a common symptom of maleware/spyware.
It is also a redirect to a website they are hoping if you see it enough you will get interested and pay to join.
It may have installed as a legit program without your permission.
This would be why the restore did not work.

There are other reasons, but I will only deal with these first as they are the two most common.

If it is only happening on one site I would just forget about that site as it is a lost cause.
If it is happening on more than one site then I would run a few good spyware scans and at least one good anti-virus scan if not more than one to make sure you "catch" it if that is in fact what is wrong.

If you do not already have them I would reccomend installing

Hi !
I'm using Windows XP Professional as my O.S. While doing something (don't remember what I clicked ) suddenly I found the back and the forward buttons on the My Documents toolbar had greyed out, but the Internet Explorer toolbars appeared normal. The back and Forward buttons are greyed out on all the Drives as also on 'My Computer'. I have cheked in the view >toolbars > Customize. Both the buttons are added. How do I get these buttons back ?
Please Help!! and Thanx in advance.

A:Back and Forward Buttons greyed out

I'm not sure if anything wrong actually.... those Explorer toolbar buttons only activate and turn on colour after you start browsing through selected folders/files/items; ie, back button activates to go back to last selected item//and forward arrow activates in the reverse manner.... both arrows activated[in colour] when you have an option of choosing an items behind or ahead you already selected.
However if that's not the solution.
try here

....look under 'T' ---Toolbars section;
there's a toolbar repair kit there.

HI all,

Got a new Toshiba laptop in September. Came with Win 7. I tried giving IE9 a chance but I really didn't like how it had changed from IE8. So I rolled back to IE8 shortly after getting the Toshiba. Well, last night I was updating and like all the other times I update, Windows wanted me to upgrade to IE9. I went ahead and did this because IE8 was giving me a few fits with google search window redirecting me back to google homepage and the back button not working sometimes. I use Norton's 3 in 1 security and use Microsoft essential as an extra tool for finding Malware and so on. Anyhow my computer is clean as far as being infected goes. I think the google redirect is in "google" itself and has to do with the auto search settings. Just guessing though.


Anyway, I pull up IE9 and locate my favorites. However, its the default list of Favorites, all of mine had been deleted. I do have a favorite visible in my user settings but they are the default too. So, I rolled back to IE8 again. This time though after a few searches and looking at a few pages the buttons stop working again. This time it acted up much quicker. I reset IE8 from the internet tools and my buttons worked again upon opening a new window in IE8. It didn't last long as shortly into browsing they stopped working again. This time I went into my uninstall windows components and unchecked IE8 waited until it was done uninstalling and then rebooted. I then went back in and rechecked the box for IE8 a... Read more

Hi, I managed to apply a windows 7 theme however the back/forward buttons of the explorer did not change. How do i change these? I remember in windows xp there was a styler program, is there something similar to that for windows 7??

A:How to change the back/forward buttons of windows 7?

Hello and welcome aboard, xZephyrx
Styler does not support the windows versions above XP

So you may do one thing . If your theme download contains any file named explorerframe.dll. you may replace the default with it. But the task is not as easy as the styler did in xp, but a bit tough .

First, Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup (if there is any trouble, you may restore it easily).

Now , take ownership (Take Ownership of file - Vista Forums) of your existing explorerframe.dll (in C:\Windows\System32), rename it to something like exploreframe.old, paste the supplied one in the location, and restart your computer.

You may try it, if you dont forget the backup factor

Hello,

I'm looking for a way to make the Windows 7 "back" and "forward" buttons in the top left of the window continue to work even when you have "Open Each Folder in a new window" enabled. Either so that when you press the "back" button it tabs to the previous window you had open, or so that it goes back to that folder anyway. Alternatively, I'd even be okay with a way to put the old go-up-a-folder button up there. As it is, when I open a folder by double clicking on it basically those buttons are worthless since I open each folder in a new window.

Any ideas?

Blessings.

Ok i am a computer tech for a living and i've been stumped. I have a windows ME machine that im working on that has mysteriously lost the back and forwards buttons on internet explore 6 and windows explorer. When he first called me he was running version 5 of IE and so after running ad aware and spybot and avg it was still happening. SO i upgraded to version 6 and same problem. I've check the registry entries that they added in 6 knowing that wasnt it but i checked anyway. I was down again tonight trying to work on it but his internet service was down. So after talking to him awhile he imformed me that on some websites which he referred to as ADULT sites some times the back and forward buttons would magically work. ITs like something has ahold of it and only lets it work when it wants to. The buttons are DISABLED and greyed out so when you move your mouse over them you get no highlighting of the buttons like you should. Windows explorer operates the same way where if you go deep in to a file directory you should be able to keep clicking back to work your way back to the top. I've searched the internet high and low and boy do i hate when i get stumped. Im going to paste in the hijack log i ran tonight but it looks normal to me. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. See the hijack log below

I was quite surprised at the lack of some of the basic features of Microsoft Edge that have been found in IE for years that are critical in my mind. One of these is the ability to have a drop down list on both the back and forward buttons in the browser to be able to quickly go to a page you've visited without having to click through each individual page.

I was hoping that Edge would get that feature in some of the updates that have taken place, including this most recent November update, but it hasn't happened yet. Does anybody know if this will be a feature added? In the meantime, it's looking more and more like I'll return to IE.

A:Back and Forward Buttons in Edge - dropdown list

I've voiced concerns over this lack of a Drop-Down list when navigating in Edge. It's such a basic feature that I can't believe it was overlooked by the Edge development team. Even the most basic start-up browsers have this ability...because it's important and useful.

You don't have sensitivity options on that mouse do you, i had an issue with a mouse in the past where by the sensitivity was set that high that when clicking once would register about 2-3 clicks.

A:hide my ip address

No way except to connect through a proxy server. Every website or computer you connect to needs your IP address. It would be like hiding your home address from the Post Office.

Online proxy servers and programs that access them will reroute your connection through another server so your personal IP will not be seen.

Search for "Hide IP" or "surf anonymously" and you will find programs and servers (some free, but the programs usually cost).

I'm not new to computers, however, I'm a far way away from being good at using them. I want to know how to hide my I.P. Address, from someone, so others can't find it. I heard that people can find I.P. Addresses through Facebook is this true? Anyway I don't want to use a proxy because I don't trust them and heard they don't work anyway. How can I be sure I'm safe?

A:How do I hide my I.P. Address?

Hello Teetar, and welcome to Sevenforums!

#1 way to ensure you are safe. NEVER enter personal information (home address, phone numbers, credit card numbers) into any website.

Alternatively, follow #1 above, but make an exception to enter personal information into trusted websites that act as stores, such as walmart, best buy, etc. NEVER enter that info into social sites like facebook, even to buy stuff. Its just not smart.

Anything else is a bit overkill, but you can still do it. Its kinda paranoia, because millions use facebook all with an ip address. Unless you are hiding from the government because you are criminally inclined, there isn't a perfectly good reason to mask your ip address.

Hope this helps

PS. don't use the facebook apps or games either, as some of them use cookies that track more than people want them to.

Other than an anonymous proxy connection, there is little you can do to hide your IP address and still connect to the Internet.

I checked my e- mails today and got and e-mail from my ISP that said a company sent in a complaint that was traced to my IP address saying that I had violated a copyright infringment and they were requesting my account information. Luckily My ISP won't give out this info unless orderd to by a court.
Admittedly there accusation was correct that I downloaded the movie Alien Vs Predator with kazza. But I don't feel this is a crime as I do not redistribute anything I download from Kazza. And the movie wasn't that good anyway.
Does anyone know how to hide my IP address and activities from this company. OR should I just avoid downloading movies.

I`ve been reading a lot on the internet about hiding ip address and all the different programs that are out there for this. Some sites say they will change your ip address and some say that they will divert your traffic through a server in a different country.
What i`m wondering is, is there actual sense in all this and do these programs work and if they do work how do you actually know that they`re working?
Does anyone actually use these?
Any insight into this would be much appreciated, thanks.
 

A:Hide ip address

Well I do not see why you would want to do this, but yes they work.
You could do this by using a proxy server.

Is there a way to remove the previous from/to stuff before forwarding an email using 'rules and alerts' in combination with a macro, script or something?
 

A:Solved: Clean address before forward Outlook 2003

There are 2 ways I have used and still use.
1: Highlight/copy what you want to forward then paste it into a new message.
2: click on forward, after it comes up highlight/delete all the previous addresses.
Oh, if you get one of those forwarded ones with a bunch of chevrons (>>>>)-
a free program I have used for some time (like 3 (+/-) yrs is e-mail stripper available at www.papercutbiz.com
Good luck.

Is there a way to forward 1 email address to 2 internal email addresses, via AD or Exchange.

What I'm using right now is: forward 1 from AD and forward to the 2nd from Outlook rule.

I would like to achieve this just with AD alone.
 

A:Solved: Exchange - AD - forward to 2 internal email address

create a distribution group - add the 2 addresses in the group. Then forward mail from AD/User account to group

Ok, I do a bit of downloading and I want to be able to mask/hide/encrypt my IP so that it isn't as easy for hackers to target me. I did a google search and it mentioned that you need to be behind a proxy server but this doesn't mean much to me. Is this easily achievable and is there any freeware out there that would do the job? Ta.

Hello guys!

I want a program, free or pay, that hides the IP address and functions well in Windows 7 64-bit.

Many thanks!

A:Program for hide the IP address?

if we're talking about web browsing mostly, you can get yourself a Tor integrated browser such as operator: OperaTor - Opera + Tor. Surf anonymously | Arche Twist

expect slower speeds than usual (the first 2-3 minutes might be very slow, while the browser is connecting to the tor network, but after that it's back to usually acceptable speeds).

There are several other options

you'll find a few here: Best Free Anonymous Surfing Service

there is also ultrasurf: UltraSurf and notmyip : Free Hide IP Tool | NotMyIP ?€“ The simplest online anonymity tool as well as a program called freegate : http://www.internetfreedom.org/FreeGate , and probably many others

I don't know hardly anything about computers but the other day I was on a website and the ad-banner that was at the top mentioned the name of the town I live in. I live in a small town in northern canada so I can't see that as a coincidence. Did they get that from my IP address? If so that makes me nervous. I don't like the idea of random people having access to things like that. Is there any way to stop that?

I have an HP pavillion with a D-Link DFE-538TX 10/100 network adapter. I have cable internet with a Samsung CableRanger cable modem. I can't think of any other info you might need. Oh, yeah, windows ME.

Timmins? Oh boy! BTW, were you born in '84?

You cannot hide your IP. But you can use a proxy server.

Then you'll probably make the OPP & RCMP suspicious persons list...

And johnwill will close this thread...

what up guys.im looking for a software(shareware or to buy) to hide my ip address.I just find out that people can do different thing with your ip address.I download lots of stuff for the net(mainly music ) I really would like to keep my privacy.can someone please help me
 

A:software to hide IP address

If you are looking to stay safe on the net, a firewall is probably more what you would need. I recommend ZoneAlarm. The free version works extremly well.

But if you really want to mask your IP, try SurfAnonymous. The free version automaticly exits after 10 minutes of use, but you said that you don't mind buying a program. It takes some setting up, so read the documentation and watch the included setup video.

And your post really belongs in a forum other than "All other software". Either the "Internet - Security" or "Internet - Web & Email"
