Internet Explorer toolbars can be both helpful and also an eye sore, because having too many of them enabled will clutter the top of your web browser windows. Those unwanted toolbars and extensions may also be slowing your browser down to a crawl. This tutorial will show you how to remove those unwanted toolbars and extensions from your browser.
























To make changes to your toolbar add-ons and extension settings, begin by:

  1. Opening Internet Explorer and then click on the “Tools” drop down menu. If the Command Bar isn’t displayed in your web browser, you may enable it by following this add-on guide.






















  1. Next, click on “Manage Add-ons”.






















  1. Next, select the toolbar add-ons that you want to disable.




















  1. After you have made the needed changes, click on the “OK” button down at the bottom.



  1. Once you have made your selection, click on the “Disable’ button down in the lower right corner.




















  1. That’s it, you’re done! Now when Internet Explorer is first opened it will display your selected website. It will also display your preferred website when you click on the “Home” button.



  1. Next, once you have disabled all of the toolbar add-ons that you want, click on “Close”.























  1. Next, close out of the remaining “Internet Explorer” settings menus.
  2. Afterwards, you may need completely close Internet Explorer and then reopen it for the toolbars to be removed from the top of the browser. As you can see in the example  below, the Zonealarm toolbar that was in the browser before is now gone.






















  1. You’re done, those unwanted toolbar add-ons should no longer be present in the top of your web browser.
