Hide Explorer Menu bar

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Michael Tissington, Nov 29, 2006.

  1. In Windows Explorer I have the Menu bar showing.

    How do I hide the menu bar ?

    I have tried clicking on Organize/Layout and making sure that Menu Bar is
    not checked but that does not seem to make any difference.

    Any ideas please ?

  2. Works OK here?

    What build of Vista are you running?

  3. Running RTM from MSDN

    I've switched it on, but nothing I seem to do will make the menu bar go away

  4. Hi Michael,

    The setting works fine here. Try closing all the explorer windows, and
    access the Folder Options applet (Type "control folders" in Start/Run). In
    the View tab, uncheck "Always show menus". Click OK.

  7. We need good MVP's here. Quit slumming in XP and come over where the action
    is going to be hot and heavy for months to come. :)

  8. Hi Ramesh,

    Unfortunately it is already unchecked.

    Any other ideas please ?

  9. OK, clicking on restore defaults did the trick.

  13. My favorite challenging quote from this ng so far:

    "How can I uninstall Vista? I can't find it in my Add/Remove Programs."
