IE9 -- I WANT my MENU screen back -edit, favorites , etc etc)

Hi there
Took me about 5 mins to sat to HELL with IE9

Why cant I get my MENU bar back (Favourites, edit, cut, paste etc etc).

Don't Software DEVELOPERS EVER TEST stuff before releasing a product.

I've restored my image -- I WANT my old menu back --it's GONE in IE9 and doesn't seem to have a way of making it work.

Cheers
jimmbo

jimbo, it's like you're NOT a gold member, nor a guru... There already are solutions to this, Brink even posted a tutorial about the menu bar. Seriously, look around first before posting a topic.

Hi there
I TRIED this and IT DOESN'T work -- I don't post without trying something first --c'mon guys I've been around long enough not to post B/S and actually the Forum DOES say Gold member too.

This is what I need from IE8 and IE9 doesn't give it to me at all even following Brinks tutorial.

Cheers
jimbo

The method to get the menu bar back permanently on IE9 works just fine.

Hi all
The 32 Bit version works just fine -- don't know what's up with the 64 bit version.
(I'm on W7 X-64 Enterprise).

I'm going to do a W7 re-install in any case this weekend -- now need to use W7 PRO rather than the W7 Enterprise I've been messing about with so I'll give it another go.

Cheers

For the record, the tutorial provided in this thread did not work for me either. I could only however try the registry hack though as I am running Home Premium which does not include a local group policy editor.

Jimbo, its a beta for a reason. There will always be bugs and my guess is that this is a bug (not being able to keep the menu bar all the time).

I just tested the tutorial in the link below with the IE9 Beta 32-bit download in virtual machines of Windows 7 Enterprise 32-bit and Home Premium 32-bit, and the tutorial works just fine to always have the Menu bar on in IE9 beta in those Windows 7 editions. The tutorial itself was originally tested in Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 beta 64-bit.

I'm not sure why it didn't work for you. Are you on a domain, or have any other out of the normal setup?

Nothing out of the ordinary. It doesn't bother me personally as I rarely need the menu bar, but still.

I am using 64-bit though, thats about it.

Display Favorites as a link not a menu in Start Menu
I think the only thing that will work here is a registry hack. By default if you set the start menu properties to display "favorites" it does so by a menu. It does not give you a choice to display this as a link or a menu like it does for other folders. Is there a way to fix this?
