Re: how do i get the toolbar back that says "file, edit, history, tools, etc"?

Can't see the Menu Bar (File, Edit, View, History...Help)? Hold down the key ( key in OSX) and press the following letters in this exact order: V T M The Menu Bar should now be displayed permanently, unless you turn it off again (View > Toolbars). Turning the Menu Bar on and off is a new feature in version 3.6. See other bars under View > Toolbars. Click on one of them will place a check mark (display) or remove the check mark (not displayed). To display the Status Bar, View, then click Status bar to place a check mark (display) or remove the check mark (not displayed).

  • 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.

The easiest way is to press Alt F...and the Menu Bar/toolbar comes back, then right click on the same level as the menu/toolbar. Next click this drop down menu, and mark sure that the Menu Bar is checked...the Menu Bar should remain visual until closed again.
