I've just installed the IE 9 Beta and I only have the address bar. How can I add the text bar and other toolbars?

Thank you jeffdav. It does work by pressing the ALT key. However, these problems are still in effect: 1) Through the *View* component, I have the Menu, Address, Command and Status bars -- as well as *lock the toolbars* checked! The Menu bar (containing File, Edit, View, Favorites, Tools and Help) "Disappears" as soon as I click on something else. Thus I have to hit ALT again to bring these back. Is that the way it's supossed to work? Why can't the the Menu bar and others stay locked? 2) Although minor, the Cut, Copy and Paste features on the EDIT component are grayed out.

It seems like they are still doing work in this area (e.g. I can't add / remove items to the main toolbar, such as extensions that I have installed), so I would expect it to improve significantly in the final release. But I don't know anymore than you do about their plans... :-/

I understand. For now, you are right about the development stage. I think we can live with the extra step of pressing ALT to view the Menu bar. Thanks again and have a great weekend.
