Put Menus and Toolbars back on Internet Explorer 11

Windows 8.1 includes a new version of Internet Explorer, Internet Explorer 11. If you’ve skipped a few versions of Internet Explorer, you may notice something missing: those helpful button- and menu-filled strips across the browser’s top and bottom edges. But you can easily add or remove the toolbars from Internet Explorer.

1

Open Internet Explorer

Explorer opens, minus the toolbars.

2

Right-click the title-bar, the top-most strip across Internet Explorer, to see the pop-up menu.

The pop-up menu lists the four optional bars: Menu Bar, Favorites Bar, Command Bar, and Status Bar.

3

When the pop-up menu appears, choose your desired bar.

Choose Menu Bar, for example, and the menu bar appears across the program’s top. Changed your mind? Right-click the title-bar to see the pop-up menu and choose that same bar to toggle it back off.

4

Repeat these steps to add the bars you want, as shown in the figure.

You can install any or all of these bars by following these steps.
