The problem with windows 8 is that IE11 is standard. You can downgrade to 10 fairly easily though IIRC. Beyond IE10, windows 8 refuses to let you install any previous versions. you can still install firefox and chrome and opera though, which would ease the process along. In IE11, right click the title bar then choose menu bar.

There are 2 versions of internet explorer in windows 8, the "modern" version which you are currently using and the more traditional version with the menu bar that you are currently not using. The modern version is stripped down and is made for touch and full screen viewing, the desktop version is well, what you have always been used to. You can change what you are using by opening IE and then swiping up from the bottom of the page. Then click on the wrench and choose view in desktop.

If you have updated to windows 8.1, which I highly recommend, you now have the option to choose desktop by default. In fact you have a bunch of new settings that will make it seem much more like the older version of windows you are used to. The 1st link below is for the IE setting, the 2nd link is all the new settings and options you have with 8.1. Anyone who prefers the older version of windows should install 8.1

I hate Windows 8.

It's designed to force you to use the computer like you would use a smartphone or tablet.

I downloaded Classic Shell and it lets me use windows 8 like any old version of windows I want.
Works fine.

It was either that or throw the damn thing out the window.

I also told him to right click anywhere along that line near the gear and the menu options drop down.

Will require a simple restart

Will put browser to original store-bought condition

It should come up, and then you can use whatever Firefox, Chrome...whatever

There should be no need to reset you browser settings.

If you cant see the toolbar its almost certainly because internet explorer is in full screen mode. To toggle between full screen mode and normal mode you just have to press F11.
