In Windows 7 you have to press ALT in an explorer window to get the menu to pull up. Is there any way I can make this permanent?

In folder options, there is an "Always Show Menus" option, you can click...... Just type Folder Options in the search box on the Start Menu, and go to the View Tab......

You can also click on the Organize menu in Windows Explorer, choose Layout, then put a check mark next to Menu Bar.

Your welcome!!

If I could make a suggestion though... I would click the Request Attention link at the top and request the thread to be reopened, as LeeTutor's suggestion was valid as well.

Glad it was an easy answer though...
