    The lack of a menubar in IE7 threw me, until I discovered option to display.
    However, I was surprised that it shows up beneath navigation toolbar and
    there's no way of moving to the top. Not a big deal, but it's an obvious
    difference from every other window and I find it ... annoying that I don't
    have the option to move it to a more common location. What's up with that?

  2. there is a way from a registry hack I saw on a site.. ...someone here will
    probably find it for you...

    however its ridiculous that MS did such strange GUI changes....

    The fact that there was a split second lag to display the menu bar is

    This is non standard things....that have no reason to be like that..
    changes for no reason..

    I can remember what people was saying when netscape 8 put the menu on the
    right instead of the left...
    they were saying it was outragous and ridiculous.. now the same people who
    love MS, say nothing about IE7.....

    There is nothing strange about it. IE7 was developed using Vista guidelines.
    IE7 is a preview of Vista.

  5. I know this I have been beta testing vista for a long time and I knew where
    they were headed... and the whole story is revolting... the vista guidelines
    have been implemented in the worst way in vista and IE7 and office2007

    You could however follow the same guidelines and make masterpieces!!!

    SO the reason why this happened is that the guidelines were not written well
    enough to avoid such horrible nonsense!!!

    OR they were written by people who envisioned THIS monstrosity we are seeing

    whatever the case.... this is a major design problem that is a timebomb for
    microsoft, that will go off in mid 2007

    You will see what I mean.

    I didn't realize this was a Vista thing. I'm sure MS will get some negative
    feedback if they make such an obvious GUI change without providing some
    backward compatibility option for us old farts that are used to things in a
    certain place.

    Good on you Crossbow. I was beginning to believe that I was the only old fart
    in Cyberspace, but now we have 2. I really don't mind IE7, however, I can't
    see myself migrating to Vista. XPsp2 should be around for some time to come
    and I'm 68 so I will most probably be dead by the time MS stops updates for
    XP sp2 Home. MS could do some more work on Windows Live Toolbar though as
    mine just works sometimes. Good luck for the future.

  9. Be optimistic..... please...
    one of my oldest students started learing at 83.
    By the time he was 85 he could do more with computers than an average
    collage student.
    He would write complex text (writing a book), edit images, scan, print, surf
    the web, save information,
    play video and audios, work between a desktop and laptop and synchronize the
    files, go wireless,
    install harware.... and he could probably do more, but that was suffient for
    his needs.
    Of course he had one of the best teachers in the world.. hehe, but he also
    had the will and the enthusiasm..

    never think about termination.... by my standards you are very young....

    and you should think that way... because thought, creates, things.

    Thoughts can make you youg or old.. its up to you.. your brain is the most
    thing man has ever found in the universe, so complex its unimaginable...

    In fact you can reverse time.. and grow younger.... growth is the only
    the direction of growth is your choice.

    Thanks progressive realization. Believe me I still LEAR at 68 & I continue
    to "learn" at that age. Fancing (with thanks to Viagra) "learing at 83", go
    for it elder student.
    ---No offence intended---
    regards LoneWolf.

    Thanks for tip (you too rocky). I still find it odd that you have to go
    through such measures to get desired (legacy) "look and feel". I'm hoping MS
    adds floating menubar (similar to all other MS products) in near future.
    Funny how something so minor can be so frustrating (if I can no longer

    Those young whipper snappers always wanting to change things ...
