Move Refresh and Stop buttons to be next to Forward and Back

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by charles risner, Feb 13, 2006.

  1. I think MS should move the stop and refresh buttons to be next to the forward
    and back buttons like before. having to move the mouse all the way over to
    click on either of the buttons is cumbersome.

  2. Better they should add the ability to move that buttons in any arbitrary
    order. It will be comfortable for any users.

  3. And if they also make it possible to move the new drop-down menus one
    the same line as well, like

    I don't think I've ever used the Stop button. My pages load so fast I
    couldn't get there fast enough even if I wanted to. I also never use the
    Refresh button either, I just use F5. To me, it's a heck of a lot easier
    than trying to position the mouse pointer.

    That's not the main problem either. The main problem is that the
    "menu" (or the new eqvivalent to a menu) is on a separate line, and

    I like the suggestion. Hopefully it will be fully customizable. I do use the
    stop button. And the refresh button. More than I use the favorites button.
    They are too far out of the way. After 3 weeks I'm still not accustomed to
    using it.

  7. Then learn to use the equivalent keyboard actions.
    E.g. for Stop press Esc; for Refresh press F5
    for Back press Alt-CursorLeft.

    When you do that the button locations will be more significant
    for their information value to your eyes and I think their current
    locations are just fine in that regard.

    With the passage of considerable time, I still have not come to fully
    appreciate the obscurity of the Refresh and Stop icons in IE 7.0. I agree
    with you, Charlie. I'll vote with you.
