clip_image002How do I move the Standard toolbar to a location that is above the Address bar in Internet Explorer 7 or Internet Explorer 8?

We just released another Fix it Knowledge Base (KB) article. This Fix it addresses the following scenario:

In Windows Internet Explorer 7 and Windows Internet Explorer 8.0, you can press a keyboard combination, such as ALT+F, to open a menu on the Standard toolbar. When you do this, the Standard toolbar appears under the Address bar. However, you may want the Standard toolbar to appear above the Address bar.

  • please help have done everything its ben verfying for a while know the wizerd has not came up yet to help me with this thank you for your time on this matter

  • Thanks, this worked great.

    I was wondering if there was a similar fix to put the "Command Bar" above the Address bar as well?

  • This worked out just fine. However, do you all have a similiar fix to change the location/position of the "command bar" and or "favorites bar" too? I think that'd be better.

  • I did not find a answer as to how to make the menu bar complete with the word "File" in it.  This makes working with IE8 hard if not impossible to use.  How do I fix this apparent problem?

  • These fix-it tools are wonderful.  Thank you Microsoft for providing your customers and users with a very useful excellent set of fix and recovery tools.

  • Where is a button on any new style toolbar that says 'File' ?  It is often necessary, but never there.

  • My email is all messed up?

    Can you help me?
