IE Toolbar Help

Fri Feb 08, 2002 12:46 pm

Hi Guys,

Can anyone help me with a problem. On my old computer I had a button on the standard toolbar of internet explorer that linked directly to the encarta encyclopedia. I could highlight a word in a page I was reading, hit the button, and the encarta dictionary would open up the definition in a new window. It was really handy. Does anyone know how to get this back? All my web searches about this are futile. The best I've come up with is an option to include encarta in the links toolbar, which is less convenient than the button on the standard toolbar.

Thanks for any input.

Ezra.

Perhaps if you go to this website, you might be able to figure out what to do?

After checking this out I realize that it isn't quite what I'm looking for . . . anyone else have an idea?

Thanks,

E.
