    Wrong forum. Try the MSDN web forum for Internet Explorer web development.

    Good luck

    Hi Arthur,

    Tools>Manage Addons, Accelerators tab, check if your new Accelerators are
    enabled.

    Not all accelerators will appear in the context menu when you display it.
    You may have to select some text on the page before a search accelerator
    will appear in the list.

    Regards.

    Example.

    Open a web page.

    Select some text on the page to highlight it.

    Right click on the selected text to display the context menu.

    Only Accelerators that use a text selection (search or translate
    accelerators) will be displayed in the list.

    Unselect the text by pressing the Esc key.

    Right click on the page again.

    This time only Accelerators that use the page web address (domain lookup or
    translate accelerators) will be displayed in the list.

    Regards.
