Question: I lost my menu bar in the Opera browser and don't know how to get it back.
Answer: There are several things to try that will probably bring back the menu bar. The simplest one to start with is to right click in the browser window and look for an entry Show menu bar in the right click menu. If that entry is there select it, if not then you need to try something else.
Other ways to bring back the menu bar include holding down the CTRL key and then pressing F11 or to hold down the ALT key and press V to bring up a list of options including one that allows you to enable the menu.
Finally, if none of these work or if the menu keeps disappearing then you need to edit the opera6.ini file. Look for the [User Prefs] section and add a line Show Menu=1.
Which of the above options will resolve the problem depends on which version of Opera that you are using and which operating system that you are using.
