Windows 7: Internet Explorer

Windows 7
Internet Explorer

The screen in XP used to have the top blue, etc.
My wife's having a fit abot this...... The window is now Clear across the top and looks nothing like the XP did.

Is there a way I can alter the appearance or top of I.E.?

You can easily make a global change (where all title bars have the same appearance):

  • Open the Control Panel
  • Click on Appearance and Personalization
  • Click on Personalization > Change window glass colors
  • Uncheck Enable transparency
  • Click the Save changes button
(You can also change the color of the bar if you wish.)

Let us know if MikeyZ's suggestion works for you, because if not, there are several other personalization and theme options.
