My entire computerscreen is filled with the recipe exchange EXCEPT for about an inch and a half on either side which is beige colored and totally blank.

Is that not normal? It sounds like my screen.

I have no way to get out of RE except by turning the computer off totally. Theres no icons, nothing at the top of the page, no url area, no search area, nothing. Anybody know what's up? I'm amazed i can type here.

Hold down the ctrl key and roll the mouse roller forward.

Have you heard of Close Encounters of the Third Kind? Beam me up! ~~ Seriously, I assume this has never happened before? How long has it been since you re-booted?

Oh, nm, lol. Your search bars got hidden?

Not normal for my screen. I usually have a backward/forward arrow to flip between pages. If I highlight a url someone posts there's a google search bar it appears in and I could click "search" and go to the site. NOTHING anywhere!

Roll your mouse around.... somehow, you must have 'clicked' onto "full screen"....

I didn't change anything and I have the most upgraded IE (PITA)...Yes, Pat...I see it too!

May 12, 2010 9:32 pm
Does anypne know if the F11 key is a toggle switch to 'full screen'? (usually, there are at least 2-3 ways to do the same thing.)....

Start hitting F keys until something happens, lol.

If Windows...try right clicking and see if there's an option for a different view.

F11 did it for me!

Gotta go; hope this gets resolved. Can't have folks bumping into walls for goodness sake!

It looks like AR may have made a change and my computer will not allow it unless I'm asked, kind of thing? Sheesh!

mimosa...oh my gosh, that was absolutely scary! *****MrsS how do I get out of this he!! hole? I can't go any where except right here (not that I mind the company).

F11 doesn't work for you? If I hit it I go to full screen. Hit again and I go back.

May 12, 2010 9:36 pm
I learn by trial and terror (pun intended!!!).... It's been a few years since taking all my computer courses.... Hate when these things happen... it is so simple to get out of... where is Dave or Gder when we need them??!!!
 
Mrs.S
May 12, 2010 9:37 pm
What are you trying there patricia...
 
patricia3096
May 12, 2010 9:37 pm
hezzy, so....ask me a hard question!!!! How the confounded heck do I know! Had to call the grandson and he says "yes, windows 7" Geez, I thought everyone knew just how feeble my brain is when it comes to computers but....hezzy, I'm glad you had faith in me.

No...The Tool bar is not lost...there is a 2 inch edge(of gray area) on each side of the text/RE normal screen .....
 
Mrs.S
May 12, 2010 9:40 pm
There must be some people who actually USE the 'full screen'... I never do, and it shocks me the couple times it just happened.... so frustrating!

May 12, 2010 9:41 pm
Pat...Hit F-11 to return where to you were ( Your previous Lost Self) I am there!

May 12, 2010 9:41 pm
mimosa, tried all F keys...got a popup about using a browser (whatever THAT is). F11 alone got me nothing
 
Mrs.S
May 12, 2010 9:42 pm
I FOUND THIS (DO NOT KNOW IF THIS WORKS OR NOT):----- What to do when you fiddle around with things and suddenly your toolbar disappears. This is very frustrating if it is the main toolbar with view where you could otherwise get the toolbar back. Well, there is a simple way to get any toolbar back.---- Point anywhere in a blank space at the top of your screen where the other toolbars are.---- Right click and you will get a popup menu.---- There should be the checkmark missing next to your standard toolbar.---- Click on it and the toolbar should be back.

OKEY DOKEY....just did F11 again, waited and did it again, waited and did it again...IT WORKED!!!

I'm still lost about the problem...still have 2 inch gray edges (ON MY LAPTOP) so it reduces the amount of screen area....Hmmm...17in screen.... subtract 4.....INCHES!

Welcome back! Was it worse than Chex Mix HeII?

May 12, 2010 9:45 pm
Shish, that was scary but thanks to all who came to the rescue. The grandson wasn't too thrilled that I called to ask him that (guess he WAS asleep). Thanks one and all, hope I can remember this if it ever happens again.
 
Mrs.S
May 12, 2010 9:46 pm
If it should ever happen again (it won't), this may work too:--- If you cannot see the menu bar, press ALT+V to display the View menu, and then press T to display the Toolbar menu.

Cindy, you've got your tool bars, right? Just blank edges?
 
Cindy Capps Lepp
May 12, 2010 9:48 pm
Just blank edges..thinking rebooting may help...but Heck, the Girls are here!

May 12, 2010 9:49 pm
mimosa, never been to Chex Mix Hell but likely I'd still be there had it happened. I remember loooong time members getting stuck there . ****Cindy, I'd come back to keep you company if I knew how but then we'd BOTH be stuck. Try the F11 several times like mimosa said.

May 12, 2010 9:51 pm
Cindy, just saw your comment to "return to my lost self". Danged if that didn't do it but hitting F11 again got me back to the "real" world. Geez, someone keep hold of my lifeline will you please?
 
Cindy Capps Lepp
May 12, 2010 9:52 pm
Nope...I don't have Windows 7 on this one...so that'snot working...Oops that was a typo

LOL! Pat! I dug in the spurs for you! So you can go back and forth!

And Chex Mix 'ell was NOT a fun place! It was like getting sucked into some Stepford Wife like black hole!

Nope...I think its an HTML setting...The way my computer reads the page...

Well, now that you guys rescued me I gotta go check out my e-mail. DebB sent me a link to her son's music and I just have to see what this kid is up too. Everyone who's seen/heard it says he is mega talent (WE KNEW HER WHEN!). Thanks again.

May 12, 2010 10:29 pm
Well, everyone is right about Deb's son. Not to crazy about DJRap herself but I could at least go along with the beat (even tho I didn't "get" the words). I do recognize younger people would sure go for it too.
