    Sounds like you hit the full screen button. Put your mouse all the way to the top and it should appear again. And click the green button

    Or just point your mouse at the top so it appears, and go to system preferences and turn off Autohide Menubar.

    the "green" button? no that's not it, if you mean the one to the right of the "red" and "yellow"

    "Or just point your mouse at the top so it appears, and go to system preferences and turn off Autohide Menubar."

    where do i find this , "Autohide Menubar." ? i have spent nearly two hours this morning in total frustration trying to correct my screw up. i will never click another "button" until i know the exact results.

    than you all for your replies. :apple: Mac :(

    System Preferences, General pane.
    Underneath Appearance, next item is Use Dark menu bar and Dock...
    Following that is the checkbox for Automatically hide and show the menu bar.
    Uncheck that box.
    And - done.

    Go to System Preferences, and click on General in the top left of the window. If this setting is checked, uncheck it:
