Get Rid of "Favorites" in IE8

Discussion in 'Internet Explorer' started by Stew, Feb 4, 2010.

    We have a web app that we built for a customer. The app is tied to IE. The
    app is set to display at a set resolution using IE. IE is only to show the
    URL line and the menu bar. An extra toolbar throws things off. Scrollbars
    appear where they shouldn't, etx.

    No matter what I do, I can't get rid of "Favorites" and the line it's on.
    Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Hi Stew,

    Please define what you mean by Web app?

    Network administrators remove features from IE using Group Policy which 'web
    apps' cannot do.

    You can create a burlesque version of IE using IEAK that has the features
    you want or you can use the window.open features arguments to open your web
    app from a Internet shortcut in a single window with only the features you
    want.

    There is a new window.open feature to either inherit the IE zoom settings or
    to display the window at 100% zoom. Normal practice though is not to
    hardwire your page layout and metrics for Accessibility reasons.

    Scrollbars appear where they shouldn't..... add this style snippet to your
    page

    html body (height:100%)

    Your body tag should look like

    <body scroll="no" style="overflow:hidden; background-color:#000000;
    padding:0px 0px;margin:0px 0px"
    onload="document.getElementById('WLSearchBoxInput').focus();">

    with the depreciated scroll attribute and also the overflow:hidden rule to
    cater for Quirks and Standards mode browsers.

    Regards.
