    Somehow I messed up my admin account and now I'm in some weird mode where menu items are repeated. Anyone know how to get out of it? I tested the guest account and there's no problem there.

    Restarting just brings me back to the same situation. It appears I can also access the private (invisible) folder. I am not in root user mode according to Directory Utility, but I was when this started. I don't know what I did.

    OK. I think I figured it out. Somehow, "VoiceOver" in the Universal Access got turned on. I didn't have my speakers on, so when I put on some headphones I heard it talking and figured out how to turn it off. When I turned it off all the hidden menus disappeared too.
