    What do you mean by "toolbar" in this context?

     

    The strip across the top of the screen? That's called the 'main menubar'.

     

    The collection of icons (applications and folders) at the bottom of the screen? That's called the 'Dock'.

     

    Something else?

    I mean the line across the top where the arrows used to be before I installed Lion. I can't click on the back arrow anymore  because it is not there. What am I missing? TIA

    Hi, Tanya -

     

    That then is not an IMac toolbar, nor is it a Lion toolbar.

     

    From what you posted, I guess this must be the toolbar at the top of a Safari window, correct?

     

    If it is in Safari, go to the View menu and select "Show Toolbar".

     

    It really helps us to help you quicker if you identify what program you are in when experiencing a problem - saves a lot of time asking clarification questions.

    Don,

    Sorry about not specifying Safari. However, I  already tried what you suggested. And when I go to "customize toolbar" nothing there will drag up as it says to do. It's very frustrating not to be able to go backwards.

    Any other suggestions?  (I just tried Chrome  and Foxfire, and they both have back arrows, so I think I'll switch to one of them.)

     

    Thanks.

    Tanya.

     

    It is worth sticking with Safari. There is nothing wrong.

     

    To fix the missing toolbar, while Safari is open, go all the way up to the menu, click on view, and select the first item - "Show Toolbar" as shown in the following image:
