right click just below the top blue bar it should give you a pop-up with Menu Bar, Tool Bar, and Bookmark Bar.
Thx a lot Emerald. Your suggestion above was the 1st thing I did on 12/31, and I JUST REPEATED IT AGAIN--AFTER HAVING RESTARTED MY LAPTOP.
ALL I GET ARE 3 OPTIONS: "RESTORE" (THE 2 SML SQUARES FOR REDUCING THE PIX SIZE), "MINIMIZE" AND "CLOSE"
. STILL NO LUCK RESTORING MY TOOLBAR.
