Windows 7: ANN: Classic Shell 2.9.3 is out - Now with Search!

Dear Ivo,

Thanks a billion for the new IE9 addon.

Would it be possible to add a new feature to allow moving the Favorites button to the left, because right now in IE9 it's only possible to move the Refresh button and Stop button to the left side of the Address Bar.

Also, I would like the Favorites pane to stick to the left upon closing and reopening it without having to click the arrow button in the top left corner of the pane again each time, and perhaps it would be nice if the pane were able to close itself upon clicking a favorite.

Hmm... I'm not sure what you mean. How about a picture?

Yeah, sorry. I don't know of a way to do that.

Maybe you can get closer to what you want with this;

Customize the Internet Explorer toolbars

Thanks, Mike but that's how it used to work in IE8. In IE9, unfortunately this functionality is in fact missing. So basically, this time they've put the gas pedal on the passenger's side again (just like they did when they put the Show Desktop button on the right side of the Taskbar in Windows 7, although by now I've already discovered a tweak for that).

The only semi-plausible workaround that I know of involves the creation of a new folder, using the MKLINK command with the /J option to join this folder with
Code:
C:\Users\{Username}\Favorites
and then adding it to favorites. However, it's only semi-plausible because it misses the whole point of reducing the number of bars displayed at the top of the IE window.

I didn't know that, thanks. I have not yet installed IE9. I very rarely use IE anyway.

Very nice program. I really missed the Parent Folder button and especially the ability to Ctrl+click it to open this folder in a separate window, and now it's there again!
