Google is usually a saviour in cases like these. Just type what you have done into the search box. Someone else has always done it too and the answer is usually there.

loopylou can you not just drag and drop it back?

Can't help I'm afraid....DH has somehow moved the toolbar from the bottom of the screen to the top....he's got no idea how he did it and I can't work out how to move it back!
At least I didn't get blamed, I wasn't here! confused

This usually happens when you press a key by mistake. Try pressing the 'alt' key or go along the f Keys at the top. It is usually f11.
Which keys exactly to press depends on your computer, operating system, browser and what was pressed to cause the error.

I use Google as my home page and can usually go to my favourites and just click on and there it is. This evening however the top line has disappeared and with it the favourites button and the back/forward button etc. Also the bottom line has disappeared and the only way I can switch the computer off or indeed to change web pages I have to switch the computer off by using the big button which I normally use to switch it on when I start it up in the morning. To change a web page I have to switch off and then start up again and go through Google search.

As you have probably twigged by now I am very much a technophobe so if anyone can help with my problem please tell me in words I might understand. I hope you will also understand the words I use !!
