Internet Explorer 9 Question

by rc06 / August 29, 2012 1:53 AM PDT

I have a new Samsung laptop that has Windows 7 and came with Internet Explorer 9 pre-installed. Im not sure what its called but I want to know if there is a way to disable the messages that pop up at the bottom of the page.

When I had IE 8 it never had them, I prefered IE8 but this laptop never had it installed at all and I cant find a way to use it.

I would mind staying with IE9 if theres a way to stop the messages, so if anyone can help I would appreciate it.

Browsers do have to ask questions.

When I download a file in ie9 that's where the notification goes. In firefox it's somewhere else. Each browser has it's own method so why are you not using the browser you want?

Also, are you asking for tutorials on how to configure IE9?

I personally don't use IE for many reasons, but as a rule, it's good to use the most recent version of software. This is because there might be important security updates implemented into the new version.

But are either of these the solution you're looking for?:
