Registry changing IE8's address bar ON/OFF.


I've been googling a little and have not been able to find the correct registry key entries which display the address bar/search bar within regedit for ie8. I'm using windows 7 x64.

The supposed registry entries which contains such data for dword editing is:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main

These two entries were non-existent, I have manually created the keys with a couple of different values found around the net; which have no effect on IE8's address bar/search bar/back+forward buttons.

I do not wish to remove IE8 nor use -k (kiosk) argument.
