Internet Explorer Information Bar Help

For Internet Explorer 7.0 or 8.0 users, the Information Bar will be displayed at the top of the webpage. The Information bar is the place where Internet Explorer displays information about security, downloads, blocked pop-up windows, and other activities.



Important You can turn off the Information Bar in Internet Explorer by lowering the default security settings. However, we strongly recommend that you leave these security settings at their default level or higher.

  1. Open Internet Explorer
  2. Click the Tools button, point to Pop-up Blocker, and then click Pop-up Blocker Settings
