Hi Wildabeast.
If you're using XPPro, you can use gpedit to put the menu bar back on top like it was in IE6.
(User Config> Admin Templates> Windows Components> IE). Right click "Move menu bar above the navigation bar'", click '"Properties", then check 'Enabled'.
If you're using XPhome, you can put the menu bar back on top with a reg entry.
Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Toolbar\WebBrowser.
Create a new DWORD value and name it "ITBar7Position" (no quotes) and give it a value of 1.
Exit the reg, relaunch IE7.
One thing you will notice is that if the Favorites "Center" is expanded on the left, the menu bar and address field bar will switch places. Close the Favorites center and the menu bar is back on top again. It's due to a space constraint with the new search feature to the right of the address bar.
In XPPro, you can again use gpedit to get rid of that as well.

Thanx Hitsquad, but your'e to late, I did something to my computer and ended up reformatting a couple of days ago. I just didn't put IE7 back on...
But someday I know I'll have to, so I'll print this out to help me then! :thumbsup:

If you are only using IE6, I would certainly urge you install it. IE7 brings modern features, liked tabbed browsing, as well as some improvements in security over IE6.

I use Firefox too, but like almost everything else "Uncle Bill" put out, I'm sure IE7 will be better down the road. So I'll wait for the first few fixes to come out. :thumbsup:

Me being a Firefox user, I'm thus not likely to use IE7, but I still got it. There are a lot of applications that use the IE engine to display information from the web, and IE7 adds security to them.
