i was browsing today when ie6 just shut down for no reason. when i opened it up again, the address bar (the bar with the back, forward, stop, and refresh buttons) wasn't there and i cant get it back. how do i get it back?
that didnt work. when i right click, there is no option for standard buttons. i dnot think i descriped the whole extent of the problem. everything is gone in the ie window. i cant even access the pulldown menus (file, edit, ect...). all that there is on the screen are the three bottons in the top right corner, and the scroll bar. i attached the image so you can see for yourself
You could try this...Navigate to the following key in the Registry:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER | Software | Microsoft | Windows NT | CurrentVersion | Program Manager | Restrictions

Set the DWORD "NoFileMenu" to 0 (if the value is 1)...a value of 1 suppresses the File Menu list.

You will need to reboot to set the change on the system.

If the "NoFileMenu" DWORD value is already 0, try this...

Remove the following Internet Explorer Registry key value, and then restart the computer (Back-up the Registry, or at least the key before deleting it):

HKEY_CURRENT_USER | Software | Microsoft | Internet Explorer | Toolbar | WebBrowser

This will reset the layout of IE to default, and Windows will rebuild the key upon reboot.;)

Ohhhhh, ok! I know what's wrong now!

Open your browser, and press F11. That might solve your problem. You dropped yourself into full screen mode.
