Joyce says “Help! There’s no menu bar on Google Chrome”
Thank you for the awesome job on my computer and in such a short time. I do have a problem that I hope you can resolve. You told me on Google Chrome, which I am using as my default browser, that I should always click File and then Exit. Well my problem is that there is no toolbar with File or any other icons. They aren’t on Chrome Google as far as I can determine. I have been going to Start and turning off the computer, is there another way to do this? Or am I missing the point of your instructions. Love you guys, you help me in so many ways you will never know. Hope you can answer this problem as I know it is probably one only a senior like myself would have. Thanks again for all you two do. Joyce

Our answer
Google Chrome has a very unique layout. There’s no traditional menu bar and no way to add one. But it does have an equivalent. If you’re using the very latest version of Chrome, you’ll see an icon in the top right corner — it’s very simple – three horizontal lines. Click that icon, you’ll see a menu appear… the last item on the menu is “Exit”.

You’ll also find other important things in that menu — like Bookmarks (and Import bookmarks), Settings, and even “Launch Chrome in Windows 8 mode” (if you’re using Windows 8).

We hope this helps you and others who may be wondering the same thing.

    Wow! how neat! I am one of those seniors, and I didn’t know what that was there for. You guys are SuperHeroes to me. Thank you very much for ‘being there’ I am sure ‘we’ all love you, and I know ‘we’ all love what you do.

    In Windows 8 and Chrome, when you click the three bar icon that replaced the wrench, there is no “Exit”?????????

    Ignore previous – close and open fixed both little x at top right hand corner and the missing “Exit” reappeared.
