Hide address bar in IE7 or toolbars in kiosk mode

Hi

In IE6 we have a locked down system that does not show the address bar - this is for browsing a library catalogue, and has access to the back, refresh & home buttons. But I can't get this to do the same in IE7, I've tried kiosk mode, but that has no buttons.

Anyone got any ideas?

Cheers

Ian

i'm sorry but i realy didn't recoqnized what you need in your question??
i you mean that you can't see the toolbar or the address bar so you can show it by
alt+v>Toolbars -> then chose the menu bar or any other bar you want to show
if you mean that you can't see the address bar ot it is hide, make sure to unlock the tool bar first (alt+v>Toolbars ->lock the toolbars)
then make sure that it is not too small or hidden in the corners ..

Best Regards

Simply put, Internet Explorer 7 requires all windows to contain an address bar.

Have you tried pressing f11 that send the browser into kiosk mode but the address bar will remain on the screen for 30 secs and then it will disappear then it can be access again if you roll the mouse over the top part of the website...

Thanks Jimmy

I tried that too, but I want to make the address bar not appear at all, or disabled. There was a reg hack for IE6 that enabled this to be done, but can't seem to find one for IE7.

Kiosk mode would be great if I could have the back button & home button available!

According to Microsoft, Address Bar in Every Window
http://download.microsoft.com/download/c/2/9/c2935f83-1a10-4e4a-a137-c1db829637f5/IE7RG.doc

With Internet Explorer 7, all browser windows require an Address Bar. Because hackers often have abused valid pop-up window actions to display windows with misleading graphics and data as a way to convince users to download or install their malware, the requirement of an Address Bar in each window will help ensure that users always know more about the true source of information they are seeing.
