On IE8 my Favorites menu was on the top bar. On IE9 its a little star on the top right. On IE8 I could click and open Favorites from the top without having to click on the star. I9 added another click. Also on IE8 I could hover over a favorites folder and see what was in it It would close when I moved to hover over a different folder. On IE9 I have to click open a Favorites folder and click it closed.


Can I make IE9 work this way?


On IE8 I had a Google search window embedded on the command bar. Can I install that on IE9?


Thanks for your assistance.

You are doing better than I did - I couldn't get IE9 to install at all !


However, if it works anything like IE11, once you have the browser open, press the 'Alt' key and the menu bar will appear. You can then click on view and select the toolbars you want to be permanently displayed. the one I think you want is the 'Menu' bar itself. 'View / Toolbars / Menu bar' should do it.
