When done download your toolbar from the same window using the download link on top right. You can give your toolbar users the first link we came across in step 6. 10. when done logout. Login again if you want to change the layout. PS: Whenever you make changes to the toolbar the users who have installed it need not download the new tolbar again and install. The toolbar is automtically updated for them after some time of your update usually 5-15 mins or sometimes even less. I hope Digit ships this toolbar in its next CD/DVD.
