Where is the bar with the "File Edit View "etc. menus???

Where is the bar with the "File Edit View "etc. menus???

I've installed Paint Shop Pro X on my work system running Windows XP Pro. When I bring up PSP, it opens normally, but there is nothing in the gray bar just below the top blue title bar. I expected to see the usual list of menus such as "File   Edit   View   " and the rest, but that gray bar is empty!

Where did the menus go? And how do I get them back???

RE: Where is the bar with the "File Edit View "etc. menus???

While holding the ALT button press the V button.  This should open up you VIEW menu.  You'll then want to go to the Toolbars and turn on your menu toolbar.

Good luck,

Thank you!

Unfortunately, I just tried it, and Alt-V produces no change at all, just a quiet BEEP as though I'd pressed a wrong key. Alt-F produced the same beep instead of opening a FILE enu.

The File, Edit, View etc. menus don't appear at all across the top of the scree, that's the problem.

Hmmm, the hunt continues......

RE: Where is the bar with the "File Edit View "etc. menus???

I think you'll have to try to re-install it. Seems something went wrong at some point, and the menus did not get created. Just run the installer over itself,and see if that fixes it.

Ignorance is not necessarily Bliss, case in point:
Unknown has caused an Unknown Error on Unknown and must be shutdown to prevent damage to Unknown.
