How to add Address Bar in your Windows Desktop

Having the address bar on your desktop will help you to open a site without opening Internet Explorer. IE is eventually loaded but only after you type the web site address and press Enter.
Users who are used to flipping between various applications may find this useful, particularly to check a website quickly. So if you wanna save that little bit of extra effort, just read on.

How to do it?

1. Right-click the taskbar and click Toolbar >> Address. The address bar appears in the taskbar.

2. Click and drag the address bar on the top of the desktop. Right-click the address bar and select Always on top.

Now you can surf the web just by typing the website and hitting Enter. Even if you open other applications or folders, the address bar will always stay on top.
In the above image, selecting Auto-Hide will hide the address bar. To make it visible, just point your cursor to the top where the address bar was located.
