Internet Explorer problem

  Totally-braindead 17:01 10 Sep 2004

I'm sure its simple but I can't see how to do it, I've lost the top line of my toolbar in Internet Explorer that says file, tools, options etc. Can someone tell me how to get it back, thanks.

Just press F11 again.

Right click toolbar and untick Lock the Toolbars.

Left click (and hold the mouse button down), click on the vertical row of dots at the end of toolbar and the cursor should turn into a four-way arrow. Drag down and your menu bar should reappear.

You may need fiddle around to get everything as it should be. Then right click and tick Lock the Toolbar.

No thats not it, it happened after I installed a program called lookout from Microsoft. I'm sure its just a matter of ticking or unticking a box somewhere but I don't know where.

Perhaps I'm not explaining it properly, its not the actual toolbar I've lost its the bit that appears above it, the text bit that allows you to set your internet options and open another window etc, etc. Its this thats disappeared and I want to get back.

Yep, your menu bar. This acts like toolbar, just like the ones with buttons on. It may have been displaced by one of the others so I suggest you try dragging them around a bit.

Right click on a part of the top of the window and check to enable Standard Buttons, Address Bar etc.

If that doesn't cure it then it must be an F11 issue.

Nope no go, I'm sure its an option somewhere among the internet connections but I can't find it, anyone else any suggestions?
