    moving and locking toolbars (IE 7)

    I moved my "Links" toolbar to be on the same line next to my menu bar. I locked the toolbars. But every time I close and reopen IE the "Links" tool bar is once again on the row below the Menu Bar.
    My system Admin. gave me admin rights to repeat the process as an Administrator. Same result. Every time I reopen IE the "Links" toolbar is below the menu toolbar. <img src=/S/bwaaah.gif border=0 alt=bwaaah width=123 height=15>

    Re: moving and locking toolbars (IE 7)

    Have you added any third-party toolbars to IE7 such as the Google toolbar? They could cause the position of the toolbars to be reset each time IE7 is started. You could test by disabling all third-party toolbars.

    You could also try the following:
    - Close *all* instances of IE7.
    - Start RegEdit.
    - Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftInternet ExplorerToolbarWebBrowser.
    - Delete the item named ITBar7Layout, or rename it, for example to ITBar7Layout_Old.
    - Start IE7. The toolbars should be in their default positions.
    - Unlock the toolbars, position them the way you want, then lock them again.
    - Close IE7. This should create a new ITBar7Layout item.
    Hopefully the toolbars will remember their positions.

    Yes the test was positive.
    After "un-checking" tyhe google toolbar the links toolbar behaved as desired. But as soon as I checked the google toolbar again the links toolbar again kept returning to its own row.

    I will have to get temp admin rights again to mod. the registry.

    I fear that modifying the registry won't help if you keep the Google toolbar. You'll either have to do without the Google toolbar, or live with the Links toolbar in the default position.
