Not sure I have this in the correct place, if not just move it.

I found this on "Internet Explorer 7 General Forum" This is for XP Home


I don't care for the setup on IE7 and was looking for a way to change it. I think I read it here also, that someone found a way to do it thru the registry, but did not want to fool with that in case I screwed up. :thumbsup:

I have not tried this tweak yet as I just found it. Will do it tomorrow.

Barb :flowers:

Note: Here is link where I found this:

IE7 Forum

Moving the menu bar above the navigation bar (Instructions provided in link)

For Win XP Pro

Start Run - gpedit.msc
User Configuration - Administrative Templates
Windows Components - Internet Explorer (right pane)
Enable: Moving the menu bar above the navigation bar

Note 11/27/06: I just tried this worked perfectly. I also tried undo and it worked perfectly.
This is on my Inspiron with WinXP Home Edition. So if you do not like it, you can undo it.

Have not done it on my Dimension E510, as I have not D/L IE7 yet, and it has WinXP Pro.

Something to consider is that the new versions of Office will supposedly be using a similar menu layout as IE7. I don't personally use MS Office (or IE7), but it might behoove you try and adapt unless you're prepared to apply similar fixes to future MS applications.

Good point silmaril8n. I do have MS Office, but it's 2003.

I have been reading on some forums some people do not like the present setup.

Note that this tweak is for XP Home that is the D/L. XP Pro is done differently.

I will edit my previous post to show that.
