The Bing Bar toolbar for the Internet Explorer Web browser allows you to search for keywords from the toolbar instead of Microsoft's Bing search engine Web page. The toolbar includes immediate access to the current weather, news and mail and is also integrated with Facebook to access your account's newsfeed. If you encounter an error when attempting to use the Bing bar, you can remove and reinstall the toolbar. The Bing Bar is compatible with Windows XP and newer, and requires Internet Explorer 7 or later.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click the "Start" Windows icon on the desktop's taskbar, and click the search bar above the "Start" icon.

  2. 2

    Enter "appwiz.cpl" in the box, and press "Enter" on your keyboard.

  3. 3

    Click "Bing Bar" in the Add/Remove Program's list, and click "Uninstall." Click "Next" and "Uninstall" to remove the Bing Bar from Internet Explorer.

  4. 4

    Close the Add/Remove Programs window, and download the Bing Bar toolbar from the Bing site.

  5. 5

    Click "Run" in the File Download dialogue box. Click "Next" and "Install" to reinstall the Bing Bar to your Internet browser.
