Show and Hide Toolbars in Internet Explorer 9

The IE team has included the menu bar, but has kept it invisible to save on speed. You can always get the menu bar “temporarily” by pressing the ALT key. When you press the ALT key, IE9 presents the traditional menu bar. It disappears when you press the ALT key again, or click anywhere in the browser.

IE9 has plenty of toolbars, but has hidden them. What you need to do is to right click on any empty space on the Address bar. A popup menu will appear showing all the installed tool bars (see image below). Click and select the toolbars that you want IE9 to display. This includes any custom toolbar that you may have installed (for example, Google toolbar).

So, if you want IE9 to run at top speed, right click on the Address Bar and disable (uncheck) any toolbars you’re not using. Anytime you need one, simply right click again, and bring up whichever one suits your purpose.

PDF Printing Quick Fix

Problems can occur when you print a PDF file. For example, a PDF file can contain damaged content such as images or fonts that Acrobat cannot process during printing. Printing a PDF file as an image bypasses that processing by sending the printer a simple image of the document instead. This process can cause images and fonts to look slightly rougher, especially at the edges. However, you can specify the resolution in dots per inch (dpi) to suit your needs. Choose File Print and then select the advanced button where you will check the option to Print as an image
