Welcome to Internet Explorer 7!

You can get rid of the middle bar (File, Edit, etc) but you cannot get rid of the tab toolbar, which is currently at the bottom. You can, however, move the navigation bar to a custom position by editing the registry:

1.) Close out of Internet Explorer.
2.) Go Start->Run, and type in regedit and press enter.
3.) In the left pane navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER->Software->Microsoft->Internet Explorer->Toolbar->WebBrowser.
4.) Select "WebBrowser."
5.) If the entry ITBar7Position exists, right-click it and select Modify, then skip to step #8. Otherwise continue to step #6.
6.) Right-click a blank area on the right pane and go New->DWORD.
7.) Name the DWORD ITBar7Position.
8.) Change the value to 00000001 or 00000002.
9.) Relaunch Internet Explorer.

Hope this helps,
John

John,

Thank you for the reply! Sorry to be so tardy in responding, but I thought had set up for email alert if a reply was made.

During the day I discovered the "Welcome to Tabbed Browsing about: Tabs:" and just might get to like the tab bar & leave right where it is.

As I get older it gets harder and harder to adjust to new things and I can't remember how to do things that were simple just a few years ago.

Thanks again!

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
