Windows 7: Internet Explorer - Turn Menu Bar Always On or Off

Disappearing IE9 Menu bar...

I notice that your guide states that you must be logged on with an Administrator account to perform the registry tweak in the article. Fine, the Menu bar now appears on all windows in IE9 by default, when logged on with Admin privileges. How do you achieve the same result when using IE9 in a Limited user account situation. The Menu bar [Alt] still disappears as soon as you perform any action in the IE9 window?

Hello DeeJay, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Unfortunately you cannot. You will have to get someone with an administrator account to do this.

I have been using IE9 for a couple of days now and I don't think it's any faster than Google's Chrome. It appears that the IE9 style borrowed the Chrome look.

What I don't like about both is the fact that there is no separate search entry line.

That's beta for you! Hopefully the final version will include the default search box however. That will make life a bit easier on everyone.

I can't see a full version of IE 9 not having their default Bing box! set as the default search with options for others.

Internet Explorer 9 has search built into the address bar now instead as in the tutorial below. You will always have the option of installing a add-on, for example Google or Bing toolbar, that has a separate search box.

However, this is a discussion for a new thread since this is not the subject of this tutorial.

GREAT reg tweak guys! When I first installed IE-9 not only was the menu bar not showing, but there isn't an option anywhere to have it displayed. I wouldn't even consider using a browser without the menu bar. So this fix is the difference between me using IE-9 or not. Which, by the way, is an AWESOME version of IE. I'm really impressed with it thus far. Thanks guys!

If nobody has mentioned it yet in this thread, the RTM IE9 now installs with the menu bar fully visible. So there's no need for this action to be taken now. It was a quick fix for the beta version of IE9. It was very useful though. Thanks Shawn...you da' man!
