Hello folks. Simple question: is there a way to move the icons "Home", "Favorites" and "Tools" on the top right hand corner of IE9 to the left, let´s say, below or beside Address Bar? It´s that I´m very much accostumed to seeing them on the left, because of IE8. Is it possible to make it look like IE8 style on this matter? Any tweaks for this? Thanx in advance.

You can sorta get the "home" button on the left. but it is not pretty and it takes up more space.

Press alt+v
Next, highlight toolbars then put a check mark next to "command bar"
Now you got home closer to the norm.


Now that that particular item is shown, you now can right click in the command bar and you can have your choice of the default setting, and also "add or remove commands".  Now you can clean up that messy new bar.

I still do not yet know how to do more than that yet.  I'm still just a few hours into using IE9.

Thank you for the answer. As a matter of fact all I really want is to place the Favorites icon on the left, like in IE8. I really don´t care much for Home or any others. There is a hot key combination: CTRL+SHIFT+I which opens Favorites and closes it, but manually. I wanted it to behave automatically, kinda clicking outside it so that it closes by itself, again, just like IE8, that´s it. Sounds like nagging, doesn´t it?  :histerija:
