I don't know what keys I hit in what combination (or I'd be able to fix this), but somehow I made the taskbar at the bottom TOTALLY disappear and the bar up the top (don't know what to call it) with the search bar, the address bar, the favorites, the back button...all that....it is gone, though SOME of it reappears when I put the little pointer up there, and then disappears again when I move away from it.

Granted, this makes it so that I can see a great deal more of whatever website I'm looking at...but I don't like it! I want those things back.

How do I do that?

(XP or Vista or Mac?)

You probably just need to redo some settings.

If you hit the Windows key on your keyboard, do you get your Start menu?

If it's Internet Explorer, you probably hit F11 to go to full screen. Hit it again to get back to what you had.

It's Vista, windows key does get me my start menu (had forgotten about that key) and the F11 key worked!

Thank you so much!

Will bottle up some of this Oklahoma sunshine to send your way ASAP.
