My mack is fairly new, but just checked and if I right click on the tool bar on the top, near the coloured buttons u should see the "HideTool Bar" with a tick next to it. LH click that to remove the tick, and the addy bar should return.

Best of luck

hmmI only have one big clicker , no right or left <v old macbook>

I suspect I do have right and left click by using the alt button

complete luddite here

Hi again, sorry i use a mouse. I tried it with the trackpad and if u move the pointer to the tool bar and then press the bottom right hand corner of the trackpad the option should come up. The equivalent to a right hand click. Then follow the above instructions. Just tried it in mine and it works…lol

hope it helps

Look on google and found this
put yr cursor over the top tool bar and see if any work.
