When I open camera raw, there is no menu at the top.  I've reinstalled camera raw and I am using the most recent version (14.2).  I can't find anything in the settings that shows/hides the menu.  This means I can't crop or straighten my images.  I'm at a loss as to what do do.  Any help would be appreciatd.

Try resetting your ACR preferences, better?
Hold down the Command key and select Photoshop > Preferences > Camera Raw (MacOS) or hold down the Ctrl key and select Edit > Preferences > Camera Raw (Windows).
Click Yes in the dialog that asks "Delete the Camera Raw Preferences?"

Well, I reset the camera raw preferences.  Now I see the crop tool on the right side, but where is the straighten tool?  And, how do I get the menu back on top, or is that possible.  Additionally, could the problem be that I am working with a JPG image?  How can I get the old layout back.  I much prefer it.  Thank you!

Also, it seems like I'm missing some tools.  Where is the radial filter?

No, you can't get "the old layout" back.

Maybe you also missed the June 2020 upgrades. ie. The "Enhanced User Interface" that moved the tools from the top of screen to the Right of screen.
