Safari for Windows

Show the Menu Bar

SUMMARY: If you're used to working with menu bars in Windows applications, display the menu bar in Safari for Windows.

Like some other Windows applications, Safari for Windows hides the menu bar by default, encouraging you to use other onscreen elements to access program features.

If you temporarily want to display the menu bar, just press the Alt key. The menu will stay open until you select an option or click on some other elements in Safari. To permanently keep the menu bar displayed:

1. Press the general Safari settings menu button near the top-right of the browser (it looks like a gear).

2. Select "Show Menu Bar".
