Add a Button for a Website to the Internet Explorer Toolbar

This tweak allows you to add a website to the Internet Explorer Toolbar:

In our example, we will use Tech-Recipes as the desired site.


Open up Notepad, and copy the following:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet

Explorer\Extensions\{8b2d996f-b7d1-4961-a929-414d9cf5ba7b}]
“CLSID”=”{1FBA04EE-3024-11d2-8F1F-0000F87ABD16}”
“ButtonText”=”Tech-Recipes”
“Icon”=”%SystemRoot%\\System32\\shell32.dll,47”
“HotIcon”=”%SystemRoot%\\System32\\shell32.dll,47”
“Default Visible”=”Yes”
“Exec”=”https://www.tech-recipes.com/”
“MenuText”=”Tech-Recipes”

Save the text file, and rename it “IE_TechRx_Toolbar_Button.reg.” Then merge it into the registry by double-clicking it. After a reboot, right-click on the Internet Explorer toolbar, and select Customize. Find your new button under the list of available buttons, and add it to your current toolbar. Click Close, and you now have your new button.
