My Web Application that launches IE uses the following simple VB script to hide toolbar..

Set objIE = WScript.CreateObject("InternetExplorer.Application","objIE_")

objIE.StatusBar = True
objIE.ToolBar = False
objIE.MenuBar = False

It has worked for IE 5.5., 6.0 I am wondering why it is not hiding the toolbar for IE7

Hi Ashek,

As outlined in the reference page, the navigation buttons moved to a different area of the interface in IE7. You cannot hide them without resorting to theatre mode.

Hope this helps...
