    I don't understand why people want Classic menu!!!
    All functions in the menu have been replaced with the buttons on the
    toolbar, for example a lot of functions are in the Page button

    Thank you Mike, well said. People have a very tight comfort zone
    and don't like too many changes all at once.
    Wait 'til they get Vista and then their comfort zone
    will be like a private security blanket.

  4. Office 2007 will come as a culture shock too.. people fear change and
    rightly so at times, but when all is said and done, the 'improvements' to
    personal computers over the years has been worth it, the users being able to
    achieve way more than ever they could ten years ago and more..

    Amazingly, there is still resistance on the part of some to XP, those people
    maintaining that Win 98 was and remains the best yet.. I just don't buy that
    line at all..

    Not all changes are well-planned and toward the right directions.

    Not really. I would like the menu bar, links only as a drop down list, and
    the command buttons for home, print, etc. IE7 does not allow all of these to
    be on one bar, which they would easily fit, so instead they take up two bars,
    plus a third for the location and search. More space, with lots of empty
    areas. There is not enough ability to customize these, or if so, how?

    why you want the classic menu if it takes useless space!!! The menu
    functions are all avaible on the new toolbar in the drop down menu buttons:
    home, print, Page, Tools and so you don't need the classic menu and you save
    space.
    The command buttons home,print, Page, Tools doesn't take further space,
    because they are on the left of the tabs and the high of the tabs is the same
    of the buttons, so the space is fully optimized in IE7.
    Is it so difficult to understand this simple thing???

    Mike,

    In my 50 years on this earth I have seen lots of change. I think I have
    adapted quite well.

    Speaking only for myself, I am not against change. What I do not like is
    choices being taken away. Microsoft says here is what WE want you to have,
    not what you might want.

    We need I.E. for deep OS security benefits. We want customizability. That is
    why I run IE7's engine but use Maxthon.

  14. Hummm......"All functions"? Which "button" are you using for the "Open"
    command? Perhaps you'd be kind enough to tell me how to open a local HTML,
    Image, Flash,...etc file using buttons only. The only way I see to browse
    and open a local file in the browser is with the Menu bar's File||Open.

    Hi mik :)

    It depends on how you like to function, many folks need the normal functions
    that are available on the File menu and aren't on the Page dropdown, that is
    why the IE7 team left the ability to add the regular Menu Bar by checking it
    on the Tools dropdown.

    The whole idea is, "To each their own," said the Maid as she kissed the cow.
    :) Or, another popular thought..."Hold the RSS, Hold the Feeds, Add the
    Favorites and mail to Read. Have it your way!"

    to open local html don't use "Windows Internet Explorer", but use "Windows
    Explorer". Internet Explorer is an Internet browser.

    Press the "Alt" key. It toggles the menu on and off.

    It does not matter that you do not understand. What matters is that
    people want choice.

  19. LOL...I'm aware of that, but the Keyboard is not a "button" on the Command
    bar:eek:) Why would you have me move my hands from the Mouse to the Keyboard
    and back again when clicking File||Open is on the menu bar.
    The Browser is also a "tool" for testing local files, ask anyone in the
    Development community or the Stationery community:eek:)

  20. I don't understand why people want Classic menu!!!

    We like the hover open behavior of the Favorites on the Classic menu, which
    is not available in the Favorites Center.
