  • Same problem for me.


    IE is working fine.


    But the menu bar in windows explorer never wants to hide.


    Options are correct for me: Organize>Layouts>untick menubar, Tools>Options>untick always show menu


    This problem occurs on several machines, but only for a few users.

    OS: Vista ultimate and pro

    Does anybody have a solution?

  • In the registry, navigate to:




    In the right-hand pane, look for a value named 'AlwaysShowClassicMenu', if it exists, delete it.


    It could also possibly exist under:




    if that key exists at all (not there by default)
