|Fine. I'll assume you are using either Internet Explorer or Firefox (although most other browsers are similar).|
If you just want to "temporarily" see the top toolbar right now, just hold the Alt key down.
To keep it visible, go to a blank part in the toolbar area and right click it. You should see a list of available toolbars. From what you have said you need to put a tick in "Menu Bar" and "Status Bar" for starters.
Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
