Let me say hi and apologize for not staying in touch -- I find that what brings me here is only a problem I can't solve on my own. So I've only come back when I need you. Sorry about that.
My problem is that at some point last night, I discovered that I had lost my top panel, leaving me without any way to get back to my desktop. [I first noticed it when I went to get back to my game and had no way to get there.] And I have no "Minimize, full-size, smaller-size, and QUIT or exit" in the right-hand corner. IS that the right-hand corner of the bar on top now that says "File, Edit, View, History, Bookmarks, Tools, Help?
At first I found that I could click on History and when I dragged that down I was seeing the top panel...but now that history site has stopped appearing when I click it so the only way I can get to the desktop is to press the on/off button on the computer and the Quit options GUI appears. (if, indeed, that is the terminology for that picture that appears offering me the option to shut down). Then when I restart, I am back at the desktop. BUT as soon as I get online, the top panel AGAIN disappears. I'm adding screenshots of With Library and then what I lose when I close Library.
Can you help me with this?
Edit: I want to add a thought. It seems to me that the whole picture is oversized -- I realize I lose the bottom panel too, so I don't see what is minimized, etc.
CAN YOU BELIEVE I was clicking around, clicked on "View" and at the bottom it said "Full Screen" and I clicked there and the top and bottom panels came back.
