I had fixed this issue once before but have since had to reload my OS and now need to fix it again. I have my toolbars setup/placed just the way I like them, but whenever I open a new window or tab, IE7 puts the toolbars in the layout it prefers. So I have to unlock the toolbars and arrange them, and then relock them. I recall going into the registry and setting a value in there to fix this, but don't recall where it was. Any ideas?

Thx

I'm not sure I understand your "IE toolbar" statement. But, just in case this helps, check that your shortcuts don't reuse the same window. Tools, Internet Optiions, Advanced, Browsing, then be sure that "Reuse windwos for launching shortcuts is NOT checked.

I had so much irritation with tabs in IE7 that I just turned tabs off. Here's a Microsoft pro's page on tabs: http://www.ie-vista.com/tabs.html.

Well, the issue is this. If I right click on the toolbar there are my active toolbars in the context menu with a check mark beside then, and they are Menu Bar, Status Bar, Links, and Airmiles Toolbar. I would unlock the toolbars and move them so that they were configured with the Menu Bar (File, Edit, Tools, etc) and the Links of often visited websites on the same bar. Under that would be the Airmiles toolbar. I then lock the toolbars so that they don't move from the position I want them to stay in. However, when I open a new window or tab, the toolbars have shifted positions so that they are one under the other. I had been able to change this previously, but can't find the same website, and have since reformatted the computer, so any browser history is long gone.

I actually found the website I had used to do this previously. Instructions can be found here:
