JHonQ,

That's great news.

You can copy all of the contents of your old account's C:\Users\(user-name) folders into the corresponding new account's C:\Users\(user-name) folders to copy over your old account's settings and shortcuts. After everything checks out ok, you can delete the old account from within the new one.

Windowspitu,

This will set a Group Policy to disable and remove the Menu bar in Windows Explorer. You can use the REG downloads below to make it easier if you like.

yeah something in my windows 7 professional computer must've been configured incorrectly. First i tried turning it off through organise -> layout but the menu bar option wasn't there! then i tried folder options and found that the optoin for always show menus wasnt there! then i tried the regs and it didn't work. I kept searching solutoins for it, i found one that allowed you to make your own reg files for it. so i created the removemenubar reg (im not sure if it's the same as your one, i haven't checked in notepad) restarted. Didnt work!!!

HOwever when i went to organise -> layout, the menu bar option was there! i clicked it and no effect, but i checked it and it now didn't have a tick next to it! tried it again, tick went off but the menu bar still there. Also i went to folder options and saw that the always show menus options had suddenly appeared! (it was already off!) i checked it, ended process explorer.exe, restarted the process and nothing worked! i tried by unchecking it again and repeating, nothing worked!!! so i have tried all the solutoins but there must be more because im sure that something is configured hidden in the registry somewhere (damn registry!!!) that configures the menu bar to always stay on! any help?

Also I should say how it got there. Originally it was off. then I found the option for menu bar some day and clicked it. Now i want it off and now it ignores me. It's like it's on permanetly but im sure there is some setting in the registry that fixes it. Help!

Hello Jason,

Did you restart the computer after applying the REG files?

Did you try the group policy option above your post to see if that may help?

Hope this helps for now,
Shawn
