Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
Do the following to retrieve your File Menu. Lock the ToolBar instructions as well, and how to minimize and maximize (restore) your IE screen.
Alt - F. This will bring up the file menu.
Use the arrow keys to scroll over to the "View" tab.
Select Toolbars, (do not click) and move the mouse over to "Menu Bar" and click if there is not a check mark.
Once this is checked, the File Menu should stay. Close out IE and re-open to save the changes. The file menu should then remain at place. You can also "lock" the tool bar as well: Follow these same steps: this time at the bottom of the list under Toolbars: make sure the Lock ToolBar is checked. If not, if desired, click this.
Also, if this does not work, you may have accidentally hit the F11 button which maximizes the screen to "Full View". If this is the case, simply push the F11 buttom to minimize back to original size. If the screen minimizes to it's smallest view setting, simply click the box in the middle (next to X close out button), and it will Maximise the screen, but to normal size, and the file menu will remain as well. If the file menu is not there, hit F11 again, and then if still not there (making sure screen is at normal view). Follow the instructions above to retrieve the file menu.
