Missing Title Information

Post by Gloria E »

I may be getting just a mite slow, but I just noticed that there's no mention of IE at the top of the browser window like there was in the previous version. Is it me or am I missing something? :scratch:

My version of IE: 9.0.8112.16421.

That's by design, in an attempt to make the user interface less busy.
You can stilll see the page title by hovering the mouse pointer over the page tab:

I suspect it's the difference between 'Windows 7' view:

and 'Classic View':

You're correct. Switching to the Windows Classic theme restores the title in the title bar.

I don't think I explained the situation clearly enough. I want to see Internet Explorer at the very top of the browser window, not the title of site I'm on. Now I see the name of the visited site in a tab , but IE is not visible above the addresss bar where it used to be.

I can't remember if I'm using the Classic view or not, please tell me how to find out? I used to know but it's slipped my mind.

Internet Explorer doesn't just display the name "Internet Explorer" in the title bar (if it displays anything at all) but the title of the active page followed by "Windows Internet Explorer". It worked like that in previous versions too.

You can see the active theme ("view") by right-clicking an empty part of the Windows desktop and selecting Personalize from the context menu, or by selecting Start > Control Panel > Change the Theme.

I don't see anything but the title of the active page, it's not followed by anything. I would like know if this is normail for IE 9? Doesn't any one who uses IE9 see the browsers name?

Thanks for the directions, I will check it out.

OK, I don't want to change the Theme,visuals, or sounds. I wanted to know how to find out if I'm using Classic view or not.

Gloria, if you use a standard Windows 7 theme - and apparently you do! - you won't see anything in the title bar of Internet Explorer 9. This is 'normal' behavior, intended by Microsoft.

If you'd like to try the Windows Classic theme:

Right-click an empty part of the Windows desktop and select Personalize from the context menu, or select Start > Control Panel > Change the Theme.
If necessary, scroll down, and select Windows Classic.

In the Windows Classic theme, you should see text in the title bar of Internet Explorer 9.

And if I don't like what I see, how do I change it back to what I have now (as if I knew what I'm using now).
