Um, Your screnshoot matches what I see? It says you can't make IE (64 bit) the default browser and make default is greyed out. So how do you make it default if you can't click the button?
It's greyed out because I already clicked it, making IE9 64-bit the default.
I posted this in the other thread but open IE 9 32 bit and have alook at that same window. On my PC it says Internet explorer is the default browser and it's greyed out there too. Both versions can't be the default so which one is it?
My theory is clicking that button in ether one makes the 32 bit version the default. If you want to test it close IE and click the link to this thread in the notification e-mail you get and tell me which version of IE 9 opens. I bet it the 32 bit version not the 64 bit.

Meaning that people probably shouldn't ask for help in discussions :P

But all the people who help don't mind, obviously

I am not sure 100% what it is but switching from Chrome to IE9 is very easy and almost scary. Guess the look and feel is kind of the same and that helps, but it is way easier then trying to switch from FF to Chrome. That took me a few tries and a very versions of Chrome before I finally started using it 24/7.

Now after a few days of IE9 I have beeing using it 100% of the time and I don't have many complants and I think I will just use it for a while unless Chrome becomes way way faster!

Well everything went OK with my bank site so that was one worry out the way the other was my shopping site.

I logged on with no problems but when it came to picking my delivery slot although it brought up the page with no problems it would not let me click on a time/date, so all I did was go up to the address bar and click on the compatibility icon and everything worked as normal from then on.

I'll be using it from now on, bar any unforeseen problems, I haven't come across anything yet that hasn't worked for me, but then I don't know what will happen when I start up tomorrow

As others have said it's fast and I like the clean look, so far I haven't missed the Menu bar, the only one I have showing is the Roboform one, we'll see how it goes over the next few days but so far so good.

That would be the Compatibility View option. As far as which becomes default when going to open either the 32bit default or 64bit IE 8 the IE 9 beta opens automatically being the one IE available.

They switched things around now seeing the home page button as well as the Favorites and IE Option menu opened on the right instead of left side until you have the menu bar enabled. https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...ar-always.html

There's no mistaking which one opens when clicking on the IE icons!
