Missing Menu Bar

  Barriz 16:46 10 Jun 2008

Got my wife’s computer upgraded from Windows 98se to XP. Internet Explorer does not show the Menu Bar containing File, Edit, View, Favourites, Tools and Help. Have clicked on the Tool Button at right-hand side of the screen, the dropdown menu shows that Status and Menu are check marked. Have right clicked on the bar containing the Tools Button, the dropdown menu shows that Status and Menu are check marked. Have also tried hovering mouse arrow over Address Bar but no drag lines show up. Using version 7 of IE.

Tried clicking on the tools button. Dropdown menue shows that the Menu Bar is checkmarked.

I right clicked on the toolbar, the dropdown menu shows that the toolbars are unlocked - no checkmark next to 'Lock the Toolbars'. The settings on my computer are the same as on my wife's computer but, on her computer the Menu Bar dosn't show.

Thanks for the link. However, it's a bit too deep for me. Will take the info along to the shop which did the upgrade, they should be able to cope with it - I hope!

You say in buteman's link that there is no check against "Lock the Toolbars" but is there a check against Menu Bar? If not click it, and then click "Lock the Toolbars"

There is a toolbar repair on this but I have never tried it.click here Now you could try Control Panel.Internet options.Advanced.And press reset.That should repair IE7 worth a try.Or press the Alt button and see if that brings up the toolbar.

Yes, there is a check against the Menu Bar.
