If this is in Internet Explorer here is how to retrieve the file menu:
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.
Please, let me know if you need further assistance.

Most probably you pressed the F11 key in the upper key row on your keyboard, and it entered "full screen" mode.
Press F11 to exit full screen mode, this should do the trick.

If this is not the case, please come back and write a comment to that effect, we'll try to assist you further.
Good luck :)

How do i open my bookmaks


Hi
Depends upon your browser.
For Google, make sure your bookmarks bar is activated in "settings" which you can get to from the tools menu - far right of address bar. Also from this menu are various options for viewing and managing bookmarks.
For IE, use the star icon on the right of the window, and this will show you your favourites (as IE calls them), and the list can be pinned to the left of the IE window by using the icon at the top left of the Favourites window.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

Click on favorite, how do you edit or delete


It depends on the browser and device. For instance on ipad in chrome you would go to the 3lines on the right of your address bar tap on it tap on bookmarks then tap edit .if you tap on the "x" you delete, if you tap on the icon you can rename your bookmark. Then save and you're done.
on a pc you click on bookmarks/favorites choose the one you edit , right click on the bookmark and either rename or delete.

Hope this helps

Setup Menu


If you can't remember where you filed that one bookmark, search for it directly from the address bar. Type the name of the bookmark and look for the [STAR] icon next to the results that appear, which indicates matches from your bookmarks.
You can also see all your bookmarks in 3 places:
  • Bookmarks bar: The bar is docked under your address bar by default for easy access. If you don't see it, you can find it by opening a new tab. To toggle the display of the bar, just press Ctrl+Shift+B
  • Bookmarks menu: Click the Chrome menu on the browser toolbar and select Bookmarks.
  • Bookmark manager: The bookmark manager makes it easy for you to organize bookmarks. Click the Chrome menu on the browser toolbar and go to Bookmarks > Bookmark manager.
Use bookmark folders to keep your bookmarks organized. To create a folder, right-click the bookmarks bar and select Add folder.
Hope this helps!

I delted toolbars to make my window bigger and now I can't get the toolbars back. I don't have anything to click on - just the windows that are open.


The Firefox "menu bar" includes dropdown menus for various tasks (including "File", "Edit", etc.). If the menu bar does not display, press the "Alt" key (if you are using Windows). That will restore the menu bar temporarily. To restore it permanently, go to the menu bar and select:
View > Toolbars > Menu bar

The Firefox "navigation toolbar" includes the "back", "forward", "reload" buttons, and the address bar (where you type a web address). If the navigation bar does not display, go to the menu bar and select:
View > Toolbars > Navigation toolbar

The Firefox "bookmarks toolbar" displays frequently used bookmarks. If the bookmark toolbar does not display, go to the menu bar and select:
View > Toolbars > Bookmarks toolbar

I lost my bookmarks


I assume you are using Internet Explorer. Open the browser and right-click near the top, preferably on the same line as the Menu Bar.
A drop-down will appear. Make sure you have checked the Favorites Bar. They should then show up.

If not, do a search for " Bookmarks.htm " on your computer.
