Windows 7: IE9 and MSE some questions

IE9 and MSE some questions

1 - how do I view the privacy report for a page without using the menu. On IE8 I simply double click the icon on the status bar. In addition it only showed relevant cookies for that page, I cant see how to do the same on IE9.
2 - how do I disable cleartype display in the browser.
3 - how do I move the command bar to the same row as the tabs like I do on IE8.
4 - how do I view what zone the page I am viewing is in? on IE8 it showed me in the status bar.
5 - likewise how do I view if protected mode is on without accessing the options, on IE8 it showed me in the status bar.


1 - is it possible to have it auto update its defenitions whilst not auto updating windows patches.

Hi chrysalis,

I'm not so sure about your IE9 questions but I do know that MSE automatically updates itself on a daily basis. It will check if there are any updates and download them itself. However, there are instances that MSE updates do pass through Windows Update, especially if there is a major update of some sort. This is one drawback on MSE I think.
