Well, it didn't work for me. It sent the menu to the top but only if I pressed Alt. It also changed the colour of my tabs to a dark green !! Had to use the default to get rid.

Alright guys...somebody asked me how I got IE9 64-bit as my default browser and the answer is, by going into "Internet Options" >> "Programs" >> "Make default". It tells you you can't do it, but in reality you can. My screenshots:

I still had to use the Adobe player for watching videos, but I installed the x64 beta. Seems to run OK

When you open up an email link, or something else that the default browser would open, is it opened by IE 9 64 bit?

Several of us got it set to what we thought was 64 as the default, only to find the 32 bit was actually used to open links.

Pretty sure... This what I get when I open the links from the taskbar (another really cool feature of IE9).
