No tool bar up top

No tool bar up top

Okay - here's the problem. Like a dummy, I installed Windows 7 and therefore, no longer have Windows XP on my computer. When I did that, I no longer have the tool bar up top (i.e. "Tools" and then click on "Internet Options", etc.) I am trying to install an update for Adobe 10 and I can't click on the Active X control (which does not show up for some reason now). What in the world can I do to get my tool bar back up top so I can update my Adobe?!? PLEASE, somebody give me some advice. Thanks!

RE: No tool bar up top

When you open IE click to the Right of the open Tab with the Right mouse and select menu bar.
You should also see a tools list Right click on it and you get the option to show menu bar.Clicking on tools gives the option to access Internet Options.
keyboard shortcuts also work ALT+T brings up Tools Alt+F brings up File.

RE: No tool bar up top

In both Windows Explorer & Internet Explorer, the file menu auto-hides.  Simply press the Alt key to show the file menu.
