How to remove the IE developer toolbar
The Developer Toolbar, like many other IE toolbars, is removable. (typing #5 image by Adam Borkowski from Fotolia.com)

If you are a web developer, you may have installed an earlier version of the Internet Explorer Developer Toolbar. This add-on for IE 6 and IE 7 provides a rich set of tools that assists with site creation, debugging and maintenance. If you are not a web developer, the toolbar can still be useful for examining the inner workings of a website. However, if you want to remove the toolbar from Internet Explorer, you have that option via the browser's settings panel.
