Push and hold on the top of the tool bar. This should activate the equivalent of a right click and a small menu will popup.
Click MENU BAR.

I got a RCA Apollo 8 for Christmas and use it to surf the web and watch YouTube videos. I just bought an adaptor and can hook up my hard drive. I ended up having my tower breaking but no biggie now. I also found out I can get the Microsoft programs if I subscribe so going to do that. The only thing I don't think I can do is burn CDs but I'll see if I can hook up my CD burner, otherwise that can wait until I get a laptop.

This is using just the touch commands, no mouse. I know it's a simple command but with no mouse, I am about to come undone and cannot function without that top toolbar.
Anybody curious as to how this is fixed, in the bottom right (on mine anyway), a choice of keyboards is offered and one is a complete 'desktop' type. Use this keyboard to find and select the Fn key (bottom left on mine) and this reveals the f keys; choose f11 and it brings back the toolbars.

Thanks for the help, it is most certainly a challenge trying to keep pace with you younger folk !

tablets are dying, being replaced by phones. Tablets are great for young kids to play their android games on though... rather than buying something like a leap frog just get a tablet instead. Leap frog nickels and dimes you to death with their games, apps are free.

It does seem like 10" is the ideal size to look at documents and maps, etc, and fit in briefcase or purse. But it is far too large too hold to your head. It seems like it should come with a bluetooth enabled set to talk and listen.

I use mine for watching videos while I'm at work sitting in my car in holding for hours, waiting to be called for a run. Beats being bored to tears all day until 3:00 in the morning.

Oh gee, I don't know, for video I'd much rather use my 8 inch tablet, than my 3 inch phone screen. I don't believe anyone makes an 8 inch phone yet, but I could be wrong.
