Windows 7: Address bar below Menu bar - possible?

Address bar below Menu bar - possible?

Hey,

I'd like to move the Menu bar over the Address bar in Windows Explorer. I faked a picture in Photoshop to explain what I'd like to achieve:



Is this possible?

The last time I did this was on Internet Explorer 7 in Windows XP. I hope it's possible in Windows Explorer, too.

Thank you.

130 people viewed this and no one had any suggestions. At least let me know it's impossible, so I can sleep at night

Welcome to the Seven Forums
I have never seen it done. But that does not mean it's impossible maybe no one has tried it yet. Sorry

Not sure if it helps, but is there an option, when you right-click an empty space on the menu, to lock the toolbars, if so, untick and try mving them manually.

Never tried myself, but may help.

Hey guys, thanx for your replies!

Luckystar, I've already tried that, but the top bar (the address bar) is fixed

Sorry, I did search quite a bit. It's easy in IE, but I didn't find any way to do it in Explorer. A Guy

Thanx, Shaba, but I don't think I've got the patience to do that. I've kinda got used to it...
