[SOLVED] Lost File/Edit etc Menu Bar in all windows

Postby Ozman on Fri Sep 13, 2013 11:30 pm

I was adjusting some settings a few days ago and somehow managed to lose the File/Edit etc menu that appears at the top of each window (see screenshot). I have looked everywhere I can think of, including Cinnamon settings, but I cant work out how to get the window menu back. :oops:

LM Mint 14, Cinnamon 1.8.8

Open a terminal and do

Code: Select all
mv .config/nemo .config/OLD-nemo


Now try nemo

Did killall nemo, then your command then alt-F2 to restart nemo, but no change unfortunately. :roll:
In a way, I am a little relieved that there is no quick answer, because I was convinced I was missing something obvious.

If you create a new user and login with it
I assume all is normal

Yes, I setup up a guest account and everyting looks normal - see screenshot.

I stumbled on the solution. The menu appears and disappears with the alt key. :oops:

Thank-you very much caf4926 for your help.
