How can I modify IE's toolbar background?

A. The picture behind the IE toolbar buttons can be set to any bitmap you wish. To do this perform the following:

  1. Start the registry editor (regedit.exe)
  2. Move to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar
  3. From the Edit menu select New - String Value
  4. Enter a name of BackBitmap and press Enter
  5. Double click the new value and set to the name and location, e.g. c:\images\savtech.bmp
  6. Close the registry editor
  7. Restart IE
