Formerly, when I clicked on File in the toolbar, a list of the most recently opened files appeared. Now I only get an opportunity to click on OPEN. Where did my list go and how do I get it back? Thanks for helping.

Re: Missing list of last opened files
You could look for this in another spot: go to view on the tool bar check off the task toolbar. On that tool bar (which should show up on the right side of your screen) make sure the getting started is the one choosen. You should see a list at the bottom of the screen of the recient documents. If that does not work, I will ask the obvious do you see a set of arrows pointing downward when you open the file menu. If you do click on the arrows and you should see a more complete menu including your file list.

Which browser ?
If you are planning on selling a computer or giving one away, you may want to consider removing all of your personal records from the computer before you share it with someone else so you can protect your privacy.
Even doing something as simple as clearing the history from your web browser can ensure that others who see the computer will not have access to the sites you visited, along with any usernames or passwords.

Restart Internet Explorer. Some toolbars will reappear immediately. Others require a restart. But restart the application anyway to make sure that your new preferences are saved.
Reinstall any extra toolbar applications if they do not appear in the Toolbar menu.
