    Hi...

    My Lightroom has developed the weirdest problem - the top bar where the close (x) and minimize (_) button, etc, should be has vanished! I've tried everything, but all I can do it press Ctrl+Q to exit... has anyone ever seen this or can think of a possible solution? Maybe I'm just missing something obvious by looking too hard?

    I thought that maybe the lightroom window was just oversized, therefore putting the top bar off the view of the screen, but can't find any way to restore down to find out if this is the problem or not...

    Any suggestions welcome...

    TIA

    Hit F.... you're in full screen mode. And don't kick yourself too hard, we've all done it! :D

    Also, that "F" button do 3 states. The fullest screen do remove the menu and the dock/task bar... This is the one I use most and I use the keyboard "quit" shortcut. And if you get catched by a black screen showing only the selected image, then hit "L" a couple times (also 3 states).

    You may also be interested to download Victoria's list of shortcuts if you are new to Lightroom... ;)

    and welcome to the forum Tia! :)
