I don't understand why people want Classic menu

    WRONG! In this instance.

    People do want, and expect, change when they get a new browser.

    Changing from IE6 to IE7 is like getting a new car. One expects it to
    look different. They expect it to have a different, more efficient
    engine, a better sound system, be more quiet, all the things that make a
    car new!

    What they don't want is for the new car to have the brake on the right
    and the accelerator pedal on the left. They don't want the radio volume
    knob to rotate counter-clockwise for increase. They don't want the turn
    signal lever to to up for left and down for right. When they activate a
    button clearly marked Headlights they don't expect the sunroof to open.

    MS is trying to tell us they know better how to arrange the brake and
    gas pedals! Some of us are saying NO. Not no to change. No to those
    types of change.

  3. ...unless you have one or more Microsoft or non-Microsoft
    items connected with the computer that don't play with IE7,
    in which case you're like a dog chasing its tail - not a problem?

  5. I save much more space getting rid of my tabs than I lose adding the file menu.

    I don't want the classic view. What I want is the menu bar, links as a drop
    down button, and the new buttons. On my screen that takes three lines, one
    for the location bar, one for the menu and links bar, and one for the new
    buttons. What I want is to be able to move those new buttons to the line
    with the menu bar since there is plenty of space to put them in. IE7
    doesn't let me. So the new IE7 takes up three lines at the top of my
    browser, when it could do it with two, and with large areas with nothing in
    it. Even if i get rid of the menu bar, I still have this huge line for the
    links bar when all I really need is a button. Why do I want that links drop
    down menu right on the screen instead of hidden under those fancy stars,
    because I like it that way. The new look is fine with me, actually kind of
    nice.

    Hi Bob :)
    Not here. The menu remains active, the only difference is the underline
    below the first letter of the words on the Menu Bar disappears or reappears
    when the Alt key is pressed.

    Hi Jan. First you have to turn the MENU off under the "tools" icon. It
    liiks like a gear. Uncheck MENU. That should turn off the MENE. Now
    pressing the ALT key will toggle it on and off.

    And, if the options are all available from the menu bar, why have the
    toolbar? Windows has historically provided multiple ways to accomplish
    the same thing.
    I was going to say, "You're an idiot."... but I won't.
