How to Install LastPass IE Add-on

Post by BillW »

In the past I have used LastPass to manage many of my passwords. Now that I'm starting over after my PC crash I haven't been able to get access to my copy of LastPass. I believe I need to install it as an Add-on onto Internet explorer but so far I've failed at trying to do that. Is that the correct objective? If so, can someone tell me the steps to do that?

Thanks,
Bill

I assume that you downloaded the installer (lastpass_x64.exe) and executed it.

In Internet Explorer, select Tools > Internet options.
Activate the Advanced tab.
In the Browsing section, make sure that the check box 'Enable third-party browser extensions' is ticked, then click OK.
(If you had to tick the check box, you'll have to restart Windows for the change to take effect).

Again in Internet Explorer, select Tools > Manage add-ons.
If the status of LastPass Toolbar is Disabled, select it, then click the Enable button lower down in the dialog.
Regards,
Hans

Thanks Hans. I used your suggested procedure back when you posted your message and it worked fine.
