The Yahoo toolbar is a toolbar that can be added to your Web browser. Made by Yahoo, the toolbar contains functions that make using Yahoo's search engine, Web-based email, news feeds and other services easier to use because they are all located on one small toolbar. The toolbar can be downloaded for free and then installed in your Web browser.

Navigate to the Yahoo toolbar download website (See Resources).

Click on “Download Now” to initiate the download process.

Click “Run” to run the installer and install the Yahoo toolbar. Follow the prompts of the installation wizard.


The Yahoo toolbar should automatically appear in your Internet browser after installation. If it does not, click on your browser's option to view the available toolbars. If the Yahoo toolbar is not checked, click it to enable it.


Beware of installing unwanted applications when installing the Yahoo toolbar. De-select any other offered applications within the installation wizard that you do not want.
