Browsing Your Computer via the Address Toolbar
You may not have noticed that you can put an Address Bar on your Taskbar by right-clicking on the Taskbar and selecting Toolbars, Address. With an Address Bar on your Taskbar, you can open any Web page at any time merely by typing the URL and hitting Enter. Windows will automatically launch your browser and open the page. You can also browse files on your computer using the Address Bar. For example, type
