Explain what you mean by desktop toolbar.

Are you referring to the bar at the bottom of the screen that has the start button/orb, quick launch icons and tray area including the clock?

What I do have is a Norton and a Google toolbar
That sounds like something you see in a browser. Please state what browser you are using.

I'm referring to the bar at the upper left side of the screen - "File Edit Favorites Tools Help " Same thing in my address book for outlook.


The bottom is okay

Press your Alt key on the keyboard.
If that makes it appear, click View>Toolbars>place a check by menubar.

Any ideas on how to get that same toolbar back up in my Outlook address book?

What version of Outlook?
I think the Alt key will show the bar in older versions (Alt+V should open the View menu) and for newer with the "ribbon", Ctrl+F1 should toggle it on.

I don't use Outlook, so I'm not 100% sure.

thanks for your efforts. The only thing I lost it on is the address book in Outlook. I appreciate your trying. Thanks again.

If you right click the area where the menus should be, do you get any menu options that would enable it?
I'm thinking something like Toolbars or Customize ribbon.
