Internet Explorer / IE >> IE7 No menu bar displayed by default has a big down side...

You know all that help documentation all the sites in the world have put
together to help folks configure IE to work with their site? Well, you are
going to have to update it ALL because most of it starts with "In IE go to
the menu bar > select Tools > Internet Options >..." And all the phone
support people are going to have to ask, "do you see the little cog next to
it is the word 'Tools'..." and the customer asks "What is a cog?" or "I don't
see the word 'Tools'...".

I wonder what the financial burden on project staff will be for the little
decission to hid the menu bar in IE7 by default.

Perhaps, you might have it turned "on" by default and let the user decide if
they want to hid the menu bar. Or you could prompt the user.

Just a little thought I had...

Internet Explorer / IE >> IE7 No menu bar displayed by default has a big down side... That is what the Alt button is for.

Internet Explorer / IE >> IE7 No menu bar displayed by default has a big down side... Thank you that was easy. And I found a bug too... Sorry, just need to vent
sometimes. :-)
