Removing Address Bar IE9 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Using Windows XP with IE7, I was able to remove the address bar using the following registry mod.

    open Regedit, drill down to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\CLASSES\CLSID\{01E0458 1-4EEE-11d0-BFE9-00AA005B4383}, and edit the clsid by inserting a minus sign in front of it, so it looks like so:


    This removed the address bar only.  The nav buttons, home button and printer buttons were still available.  This is perfect for the Kiosk that we are running.  However, we have upgraded our systems to Win 7 and IE9.  When I make this change it has no affect.  Is there anther registry key that I can "switch off" to remove the address bar only?  And no, I don't want to run it in Kiosk mode due to removal of all nav buttons, home button and the printer button.  We have clientel that consists of many elderly so I would like to keep those buttons for them since keystrokes may be a little confusing.

  • Hi,

    Address bar spoofing has been blocked in modern versions of IE.

    Kiosk mode is the common method.

    You can replace the IE menu bar with scripted actions on your burlesque website.

    Use GPO to lockdown access to the start menu and shell interfaces and your default IE settings (homepage, search Providers, accelerators, allowed ActiveX controls).
