Windows XP and IE 7 Toolbar Issues.
Greetings.

Upon upgrading from IE 6 to IE 7, I noticed that I cannot freely move around
my Toolbars and customize them like I used to. Upon checking IE 7 on a Vista
box, I noticed that all works perfectly well. When I contacted MS support, I
was given a couple of Registry Hacks to help - which they didn't.

Why would the XP version of IE 7 not be exactly like the one in Vista?

Any easy solutions?

Thanks.

Re: Windows XP and IE 7 Toolbar Issues.
Yes, obviously something is different, but we are just moving a cople of
toolbars around. I don't think that IE we be such a limiting factor for
something so simple.

Re: Windows XP and IE 7 Toolbar Issues.
Hi,
What, specifically, are you attempting? IE7's toolbars aren't very
configurable in XP or Vista.

Third-party toolbars or other add-ons can interfere with toolbar
configuration. Different versions of the same toolbar (e.g. google) can
behave differently.

Hi Don,

I would like the "file-edit-view-fvorites-tools-help" bar on top left, then
second bar down should be various IE 7 customized buttons and third bar to
the right of that (on the same line) should be the address bar. On the 3rd
bar down (on the left) should be an entire horizontal bar just dedicated to
my Links.

Re: Windows XP and IE 7 Toolbar Issues.
Hi,
The registry edit in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/930645/en-us should
move the standard Menu Bar to the top. If it doesn't, it's possible that a
third-party security program is protecting IE settings.

The Address Bar and Search box will probably not share their line with other
toolbars or buttons.

You should be able to get the Links Bar expanded on the third line. Again, a
third-party toolbar may be interfering.

One of these two free add-ons may help you get closer to the configuration
you're after:
Quero toolbar http://www.quero.at/
IE7 Pro http://www.ie7pro.com/

Re: Windows XP and IE 7 Toolbar Issues.
Hi Don,

Thanks for your reply.

I loaded a new system with XP (SP3) and IE 7. Nothing else.

With IE 6, there is no problem in re-arranging the toolbars. Upon upgrading
to IE 7, I cannot arrange them the same way.

I then loaded the system (new) awith Vista. No problem, I could arrange the
Bars the same way as in IE 6.

Is this normal? I cannot see why a different O/S would preclude me from
re-arranging the bars - kind of simple isn't it?

I hope IE 8 doesn't have this issue.

What do you think?

Re: Windows XP and IE 7 Toolbar Issues.
Hi,
Sorry, I don't have any other ideas. IE7 is not very customizable in either
XP or Vista, but there shouldn't be any significant differences between the
two OS's. Most of what you want to accomplish should be possible except for
getting the Address Bar and Search Bar to share their line with other
buttons.
