    Thx for responding so quickly. Pressing cntrl button doesn't do anything. No programm is running as literally turned on. Can't connect to www as normally need to select option on menu bar to change 'EU' icon to 'UK'. The other unusual (and new) issue is a grey rectangle on screen with a 'sundial' icon in the middle. When hover mouse over it states "New Item. This item has not yet been configured" ??

Press the cntrl button to make it appear. If you are using firefox or internet explorer there are options under tools, options, settings to make it stay all the time. Which program are you using?

Why were start menu and task bar lost?


Hi B.G.R.,

Have you tried

Pressing ALT or F10 in your keyboard to make the Menu Bar temporarily visible. If you want it to be permanently visible, go into View > Toolbars > Menu Bar, or right-click the Navigation Toolbar (the Reload button, for example) and select Menu Bar.
If this doesn't help, right-click the navigation toolbar, select Customize... and click Restore Default Set. If it doesn't appear right away, try pressing ALT or F10. You can go into View > Toolbars > Menu Bar to make it permanently visible, or right-click the Navigation Toolbar and select Menu Bar.

How to make the taskbar reappear when it disappears in Windows


Sometimes on a computer running Windows, an application will crash or an unstable process will lock up the system, and out of nowhere the taskbar that runs across the bottom of the screen will disappear. The rest of the desktop and all of your icons will probably still be visible -- it's only the taskbar that is gone. Without the taskbar, you can't access the Start menu or view the open programs in your system notification tray.

To get your taskbar and Start menu back without shutting down your computer, hit <CTRL><ALT><Delete> and then (depending on the version of Windows that you are running) choose the appropriate option to open the Task Manager. (In Windows XP Professional, for example, there is a button labeled "Task Manager".) When the Task Manager window appears, select File from the menu bar and then from the drop down menu click on "New Task (Run)". Type "explorer.exe" into the text bar and hit <Enter>. Windows will sort of "reset" itself, and the taskbar and Start button will reappear. (This may take a minute.)

Whatever caused the system to become unstable in the first place could easily happen again, so at this point it's a good idea to save any unsaved data, close all open applications, and then shut down and reboot your computer. If the same problem happens again, make a note of which programs you were running when it occurred, as it may be a resource conflict or compatibility issue that's causing the problem.

Sounds like you may need to reinstall Lion to fix the disappearing menu bar. As far as finding files, try using Spotlight. (Upper right side of menu bar)

Lexmark x9350 will not copy or scan.


Great job on trying to do it both ways, scanning and copying. Try to refresh the printer by uplugging the power adapter from the printer. The power adapter is the black box behind the printer where the power cord is attached. Make sure other end of the power cord is plugged in straight to the power outlet in the wall, bypass any surge device or power strips. Plugged the power adapter back in the printer after 30 seconds. It should automatically turn on. If not, press the power button. Try scanning and copying again. If problem persists, I strongly suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support to further investigate the hardware problem in the printer. Hope I can assist you more on this.

Tool bar for computer gone how do i find tool bars in my computer


"FILE, EDIT or VIEW" options on the top.

  1. Open Internet Explorer, and make sure that it is running properly. If you receive any error messages upon opening it, your best bet is to reinstall Explorer rather than customize the options as new add-ons have likely caused serious problems. If it runs properly, however, continue to the next step.
  2. Check to see that the menu bar is visible. If the menu bar is missing, you will have to make it reappear. Right-click anywhere below the "Title Bar" (the bar which shows the Internet Explorer icon and the name of the current website) and any other visible menu bars. Then be sure that the "Menu Bar" has a check mark beside it on the window that appears. Click "Menu Bar" if there is no check.
  3. Click on "View" in the menu bar. Then click on "Toolbars" from that menu. This will bring up a list of available tool bars. To make the one you want appear, simply click its name, making sure that a check appears next to the name.
  4. 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.
  5. Reinstall any extra toolbar applications if they do not appear in the Toolbar menu.
Please try this and see if anything help's.

Where is the toolbar? Why did it disappear? How can I get it bck complete with printer???


Are you asking about your browser toolbar? In Internet Explorer, if the menu bar isn't visible click <Alt>. Go to View > Toolbars. Make sure the items you want have check marks. The printer icon is part of the Command Bar. Once done, check the line Lock the Toolbars. This will eliminate the vertical dotted line next to each Toolbar. When you click on that line, the toolbar disappears.

If you are dealing with another application, you need to do something similar. However, the names and location in the menus may be different.

I hope this helps.

HOW,DO I RESTORE MY TOOLS VIEW FILE HELP BUTTONS


You don't write in which application did your menu bar disappear.
Perhaps you entered "full screen mode", which removes menus and stuff to maximize the viewing area. Depending on application, try F11 key on the keyboard or F9.
If this is not the case, then perhaps you have accidentally dragged the menu bar somewhere - in new applications the standard "File/Edit/View...." menu is movable.
In Internet Explorer you might have turned the menu off by accident. Right-click the menu area, and you will see a context menu, showing a list of bars/strips that are enabled (with a checkmark) or disabled (without). If you see something else, choose a slightly different spot to right-click. If the option "Menu bar" is not checked, just click it and the menu should appear.
