You can turn off the menu bar, it's not really needed, the buttons in the upper right corner let you access everything you need, and if you want to see the menu bar temporarily, press the Alt key. Whether you want to display the toolbars is up to you.

Hans

Thanks Hans, I tried to turn off the WOT bit but it only gives option to disable it. As for the mail symbol on the command bar, its a time saving item. Will disable the menu bar later to try as you stated.

I have the Favorites bar turned on in my IE 9 RTM. I also have the WOT and Last Pass Toolbars enabled. You can customize the toolbar by right clicking on an empty space (you seem to have a lot of it) and selecting which toolbars and options you want displayed:

I hope this helps.
