IE7 tips & tricks

Annoyed by the placement of the address bar in IE7, I used a reg hack last night to move it below the File Edit View bar. After poking around a bit though, I found an easier way - plus I was able to get rid of the equally annoying (to me, anyway) xtra search bar (next to the address bar). This works in XP Pro only:

Fire up the Group Policy editor and navigate to User Configuration | Administrative Templates | Windows Components | Internet Explorer. In the right pane is a load of nice options, one being "Prevent the Internet Explorer search box from displaying", another "Moving the menu bar above the navigation bar". Right-click, choose Properties and tick Enable.

Outstanding find.. ZIP

Just configured mine, IE 7 seems to load faster and eat up less resources. Like the larger viewing area without going to full screen.
