    Chrome showing legacy toolbars

    Hello there,

    I'm having a spot of bother with Google Chrome displaying the correct style of toolbar. Rather than the new "faded" Click image for larger versionstyle, it reverts to something resembling something from the 9.x era. Obviously this is far from a major issue, but it is rather annoying me, and was wondering what could be down to fix it.

    Many thanks,
    Dee Roberts

    That's the same with VirtualBox.

    They still need to adapt to the new Win8 interface or Win8 needs a patch or two to get things going as it was in Win7.

    I guess it has something to do with the new Aero theming or DWM.

    I don't see any solutions yet but I'm curious to what the people say about this and what they find.

Can you arrange icons in toolbars?
I made a toolbar on my taskbar of a folder with a few things in it. I can drag and rearrange the icons on the toolbar but, every time I reset/shut down/log out or anything, the icons all return to the default positions. Is there any way to get the icons to save their given arrangements?
