Windows Vista / Getting Started

The Menus All Disappeared

In Microsoft's zeal for giving Vista a clean look, the programmers swept away the folder menus used for the past decade.

To reveal a folder's missing menus, press Alt. The menus appear, letting you choose the option you are after.

To keep the menus from disappearing again, click the Organize button (shown in the margin), choose Layout, and choose Menu Bar from the pop-up menu.
