The address bar does not show. How do I get it to appear?

Chosen solution

  • If the menu bar is hidden then press and hold the Alt key down, that should make the Menu bar appear. Make sure that you have the Navigation Toolbar and other toolbars visible: View > Toolbars .
  • If items are missing then see if you can find them in the View > Toolbars > Customize window.
  • If you see the item in the Customize window then drag it back from the Customize window to the Navigation toolbar.
  • If you do not see that item then click the Restore Default Set button in the View > Toolbars > Customize window.
