    I read the other replies in this forum, and MS seems to be fidlling witht he
    userinterface just for the hell of it. Menu's have *always* been at the top,
    they're the next-to-invisible set of all commands nicely lined up. Because
    every app has them, that's why they work so well.

    What next, the File menu will not have new, open, print and close items on
    it? The authors of the old Windows UI Guidelines will be turning in their
    cubicles!

    Perhaps we could put the status bar at the top too, as a toolbar next to the
    Links bar, or the vertical scrollbar on the left, or the OK/Cancel buttons at
    top right? No? Think why you don't do these things, and then hopefully
    realise *why* the menubar is placed at the very top.

    Thank you for reading this, Microsoft UI designers.

    file menu is useless because you have these functions in the toolbar with
    the Page button

    I am not a computer expert. I am just a very annoyed regular user who wants
    her freaking menu bar on top. I do not want to have to force it through
    techniques I am only vaguely knowledgeable on and am most likely to screw up.
    IE7 just needs to allow me to drag the menu bar up. I do not understand why
    this is so hard for them. They can design a search engine, but can't give me
    the option to put the menu bar where it is supposed to be? For goodness sake.

    I agree! This is a bonehead mistake on Microsoft's part - who was the
    interface wizard who came up with this one? I mean, at least allow users to
    move the Menu bar *back* to where it's normally positioned - on top of the
    Address bar. Such a simple thing!

    Agreed - users should be able to move the toolbars into whatever positions
    they prefer. They should especially be able to move the Menu bar to the very
    top.

  10. I AM A SW PROJECT MANAGER AND COULD NOT AGREE **MORE**. MS CONTINUES TO MAKE
    **STUPID** DECISIONS REGARDING STUFF THEY SHOULD ***LEAVE
    ALONE!!!!!!!!!!****** MEANWHILE THEY IGNORE STUFF THEY SHOULD HAVE FIXED
    ****YEARS AGO**** LIKE HAVE A COMMON SPELLING CHECKER, COMMON OPTIONS MENUS,
    SIMULAR TEXT EDITING FEATURES (LIKE CHANGING THE CASE) ACROSS ALL OFFICE
    PRODUCTS NOT JUST WORD.

    FOR ALL THEIR MONEY AND SMARTS THEY ARE INCREDIBLY ARROGANT AND SHORT SIGHTED.

    I **AM VERY TECHNICAL** AND YET IT IRRITATES THE $%%^&*& OUT OF ME TO BE
    **FORCED** TO HAVE TO DO DETAILED TECHNICAL TASKS THAT SHOULD BE **EASILY**
    PERFORMED BY CLEARLY LABELED AND **INTELLIGENTLY** DESIGNED MENUS.

  12. Who do you work for, pcbutts? <eg>

    The (classic) Menu toolbar *is* available in IE7. Why you and everybody
    else in this thread can't seem to enable it is anybody's guess.

    If running Vista, see
    http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/Help/d6576c88-2137-42b5-a154-ce21e60ed0441033.mspx

    If WinXP, see IE7 Help | How do I display the Internet Explorer menu?; or
    click on TOOLS (in Command bar) and check MENU BAR.
