You're correct, it's the other way around. Enable=On and Not Configure/Disable=Off

You do not need to restart to apply the group policy, but you did need to restart with the REG files.

You can do this to have the Menu Bar on top in Internet Explorer, but I have not found a way yet for Windows Explorer.

Hope this helps,
Being a year and a half later, has any method since been found? I feel like having the menu bar above the navigation makes sense, but I can't figure out how to do so.

Hello Kelderic,

I'm afraid not.

Wait, Kelderic. Do you want the menu bar ON?
Well this topic is about turning it off.
Isn't it just organize -> layout -> menu bar?
Beware, if you turn it on, you may find it impossible to turn it off which was annoying after a while
i solved the solution by reinstalling windows, great.
if you want to temporarily show the menu bar, you can do so by pressing alt

Hi Kelderic,
Oh you want to put the menu bar at the very top. I didn't really get it the first time i read it. and it was off topic. It was like adding a new topic to an existing one.

From a minimalistic point of view, it'd be so cool if we could disable menu bars in each program. I wish someday an application like ObjectBar could be developed to manage all the menu bars from every program.. Damn, somebody needs a mac here

Thanks Brink! I have been searching for the "move to folder" item for months! I didn't know I just had to turn on the menu bar.
