Hi, I just installed Photoshop on my new Imac and the menu bar at the top is missing. I am new to this computer and haven't used creative cloud for a while. Any ideas on how to get my menu bar back? Thanks

You may be referring to the Options Bar. If that is the case, go to Window and down at the bottom of the drop-down list click Options.

(The Menu Bar is at the very top of the screen and includes Window)

Out of curiosity what version OSX and what version Photoshop?

There is only one case where the menu bar was missing in Photoshop: MacOS 10.13.0 (or perhaps .1) and Photoshop CS6.

CS6 is really not tested for 10.13 (High Sierra) and I remember that top menu bar missing until 10.13.2 on my Macbook Pro.

Make sure Photoshop and MacOS is up to date.

Hi,

Could you please let us know what exactly is missing, Menu bar or Options Bar? Menu bar is where you see menu as File, Windows, View, etc and Options bar is where you see options to transform any objects.

 

Best regards

Please show a screen shot so we can see what is going on. Also give the exact version of your OS and PS.

In the screen shot from @peashoe on April 2, 2018, there is an options bar. It’s for the Type tool and is waiting for the text to be committed by clicking the Checkbox.

I have not able to see my top menu bar either. I don't even have the exit, minimize, and full screen icons to the top right. I've tried the full screen mode using the F shortcut and I've tried the switching from one monitor only and back to two. I'm working on PS CC. I've just upgraded my hardrive on this computer (win 10) and so had to do fresh installs of the software. Since the new install, I have had this issue with PS only. I've tried uninstalling, rebooting, and reinstalling. Before the hardware upgrade and fresh software install (just a couple weeks ago) I was not having this issue.

I am having the same issue with both Illustrator and PS.  Is there a fix for this?  I work on a Mac and I just upgraded to Catalina.  How do I get the very top menu bar back?
