Windows 7: IE11 for Windows 7 Globally Available

I updated two systems to IE 11 today and so far the only issue that I have found in both is that the text highlight contex menu, for search, translate etc. no longer works.

Has anyone else seen that?

Edit: If I right click on the highlighted text I can get the Menu but the blue arrow box no longer does anything.

My blue arrow works fine for me:

Thanks x BlueRobot, I don't know what my issue is. It occurs on two different Windows 7 x64 Ultimate systems since I upgraded to IE 11.

Was that blue Arrow removed from Windows 8.1/IE 11?


Edit: I normally have my zoom setting at 125% (getting up there), I discovered if I return the Zoom setting to 100%, all is well but the problem occurs at any other zoom setting.

There may be a setting that turns off the other context menu option if the zoom level is > or < 100%.

I have my updates set to notify me before downloading and updating so I can choose the time to do so (I generally wait until the following Saturday to do so in case problematic updates are reported; usually, any problems are fixed or pulled by Saturday anyway) so it will be easy for me to hide it when it shows up and unhide it when I'm ready to download and update. That's what I did with IE10.

I always make a system image before installing updates and new programs. Since I do a weekly image Friday evening after running my AV and anti-malware scans (I run my data backups overnight after that), Saturday morning is the ideal time to run windows updates since I already have the image made.
Here I simply make a "Pre-" as well as seeing the "immediately after" images created. The advantage of having two options one built in and the other 3rd party is I will know them apart if one or the other ever had to be restored. For the most part the images have only been restored to test integrity with only one or two exceptions since 2009.

I found the zoom option for FF and WaterFox was simply pressing the Ctrl and + keys to zoom in and the Ctrl and - minus keys to zoom out whenever the retained 125% I left it at was off either zoomed out or in. When closing up any browser windows you have to reset the last to the 125% or be sure it is at that or the next time you open a new browser window even for the open source browsers the zoom will be off.

With each version of IE since IE 6 that has always been the case as well unless something like an addon makes a change or you forget to reset before closing up all of your browser windows and then open to a different view. When closing up several windows here fast with one off of the 125% mark and ends being the last in a rush to close I've seen that happen a few times easily corrected by making to close at the preferred the next time around and open to double check if it remembers.

As for the forward or back button which would the blue button you are talking about often a separate window open lacks that since you have not moved anywhere from the home page to then enable the back button which remains greyed out and unavailable.

Hi Night Hawk

What I am talking about is the highlighted text, blue arrow box and context menu that is shown in Post # 12

This does not work in IE 11 with zoom set to anything but 100%.

Apparently you have a glitch of some type going or a setting change needed. When first getting 11 here without uninstalling the preview first I assume the installation simply saw everything updated automatically retaining the favorites as well as not requiring a log in and remember password task as with the installs for the previous versions.

Once greeted with the MS introduction page that opened immediately as a second tab I grabbed the snipping here of an immediate hightlight and right click.

I agree with Night Hawk. Maybe you have a video driver issue:

When will the 64 bit functions be available in IE 11 for win 7

2 questions, 1. when will the 64 bit capability be activated in IE 11 for windows 7.

2. Will I lose any functionality by using it (like not having the Flash player in the older versions)?

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

I'm pretty sure that IE11 is just like IE10 in that (on a 64bit system) IE10 always starts in the 64bit mode.

Sort files globally?
Is there anyway to sort files globally? It seems everytime I open or close a folder, it re-sorts it to another criteria from when I last set it. For instance, I'll pick "ascending" and close the folder. Then when I come back to it later, it automatically switches to "descending" on it's own. ...
