IE7: Get Rid of "Go" Button?

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by Margaret Wilson, Nov 8, 2006.

  1. In IE6, I was able to turn off the "Go" button, so it didn't show in my
    explorer windows. (I'm using classic environment.) I thought it was in
    the Advanced Internet options in IE6, but also checked the folder
    settings, and I can't find it anywhere. I'd like to get rid of the Go
    button in my explorer windows, specifically, which appeared since my
    upgrade to IE7. Am I missing something? Or am I stuck wiht Go button?

    Thx and Regards,

    Margaret

    Just curious whwy one would want to rid themself of the go button--it also
    has the refresh button incorporated into it. Once (if you were able to
    disable it) you diable it, just how would you refresh a webpage?

    Margaret's question has just made me realise how little I use the go button.
    I usually use the enter key instead and F5 to refresh a page, anyway Margaret
    would like to remove it from Windows Explorer (the window that you see
    folders and files in) which has a single purpose Go button.

    I have always removed these buttons from IE toolbar.
    Instead use enter (go), esc (stop), or f5 (refresh) - much faster.

  5. Yes, exactly, Cameron and May, but can anyone tell me how to get rid of
    the "Go" button at least in the Explorer windows? I like to keep as
    clean a UI as possible, and that "Go" button never gets used, so I'd
    like to rid myself of it ... if possible. :)

    Regards,

    Margaret

  6. I "customized" the address bar in an Explorer window, unchecked "Go
    button" and then applied the folder settings to all folders. Go button
    is now gone, and IE7 still has its green double-arrow button. But I use
    the Enter key, anyway.

    Regards,

    Margaret
