The recently released Internet Explorer 9 beta sports a clean user interface. To help the end user focus more on content of each website, Microsoft has disabled the Command bar and Favorites bar (bookmarks bar) by default.
Although you can manage and access Favorites by pressing Ctrl + B keys, many users prefer to access it without using a hotkey. If you frequently access Command bar and Favorites bar, it’s a good idea to enable them.
Here is how to show Command bar and Favorites bar in IE 9:
1. Launch Internet Explorer 9 browser.
2. Right-click on empty space next to a opened tab and then enable Command bar and Favorites bar to get back these bars in the latest version of Internet Explorer.
