SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You develop a Web page that does not display the Address bar in the Web browser window.
  • You use Windows Internet Explorer 7 to browse this Web page.
  • You press ALT+ENTER, or you press F11. This displays Internet Explorer in full-screen mode.
  • You press ALT+ENTER again, or you press F11 again to revert the Internet Explorer window to its original size.
In this scenario, the Address bar is displayed unexpectedly in Internet Explorer.

Note This behavior does not occur in Internet Explorer 6.

CAUSE

When the Internet Explorer window exits full-screen mode, Internet Explorer overwrites the user interface (UI) by loading the default settings of certain options. Therefore, after the Internet Explorer window reverts to its original size, Internet Explorer displays the UI that is not visible when the Internet Explorer window is in full-screen mode.
