    Well im using hardy heron 8.04 used the dvd image. It is a toshiba satellite P105-S6024 laptop. Has an Intel 945GM graphics card running on external monitor internal cracked so i just took it off and am using the vga port (1024x768 ) resolution max.
    Whenever I go to say places>Home folder or any folder when it opens the top and bottom bars disappear. When i alt-tab to say firefox they come back i've tried right clicking and resizing but no luck.

    Do you use effects? Do you have installed Emerald?

    This looks like a problem with Compiz. Go to System --> Preferences --> Appearance --> Visual Effects and set it to "none" and see if that corrects the problem.

    Ive never heard of emerald. So i don't think so. And turning off effects didnt work either.
    All i have installed is maybe an updated alsa sound wasnt working never did get it fixed. gFTP, Wine, gmount-iso.

    Emerald is required to get Compiz to work with KDE. It shouldn't be a factor here. Try this... use Alt+F2 and type in
    Code:
    metacity --replace
    to completely turn off Compiz. I'm 99% sure that Compiz is the problem... I'm just not yet sure why.

    Strange issue but it seems others have experienced it as well. This thread contains a solution which has worked for others, hope it helps.

    Personally I didn't even know nautilus had a fullscreen mode but in firefox and some other apps you use the F11 key to toggle fullscreen, perhaps nautilus has the same feature although I didn't find any info in my brief google search.
