How do I restore toolbars after they have all been hidden?

Unread post by Amandaville » 2024-04-20, 06:45

I was trying to see how minimal Pale Moon can be, so I hid all of the toolbars and then closed all open tabs so the tab bar disappeared also. But now I can't figure out how to get them back. Right clicking on the title bar only gives me the options to resize the window or move to another workspace. Right clicking in the window only gives me the usual options to bookmark, save page, view source and a few others, but nothing to restore the menu bar, address bar, tab bar or bookmark bar. This has rendered the browser useless since I can't do anything. I can't input a url or select a bookmark, so I can't even go to a website.

Welcome!

Does pressing the Alt key make the menu bar re-appear?

Wow, do I feel like an idiot. I knew that, or at least I used to know that but it's been so long since I have used that trick that I had completely forgotten it. Thanks for the reminder. DOH!
