It pays to read the blurb on the webpage which appears when you initially start up IE9. If you don’t, like me, you will miss really important info on how to get to the full range of IE tools.

Help pages re the tools tell you where to look in the menu, but don’t tell you where the menu is. The abridged menu which appears when you click on the gear symbol is as much use as a chocolate teapot.

OK, so how do you get to the full menu?

Answer: Hold one of the ALT buttons down and now click on the gear symbol. Just under the URL address bar, you should see the Windows classic toolbar.

Now you are in business..
