Where's my application bar?


The version of Photoshop I've downloaded doesn't show an application bar. How do I make it appear please?

As of CS6 (the video is using CS5) the Application Bar was intentionally removed. A majority of users said they'd rather have the extra vertical space for their images than the Application Bar.

All of the commands are available elsewhere or can be access more easily with keyboard shortcuts:

Mini-bridge is accessible from the bottom panel (now a part of the default UI).

Cmd + Opt + o (Mac) Ctrl + Alt + o (Windows) to launch Bridge.

Show Guides: Cmd + ; (Mac) Ctrl + ; (Win)

Show Grids: Cmd + ' (Mac) Ctrl + ' (Win)

Show Rulers: Cmd + r (Mac) Ctrl + r (Win)

Zoom level can be controlled via keyboard shortcuts or UI found at the bottom of the document window.

You can access the arrange options under the Window>Arrange> menu

Screen mode has been added back to the bottom of the tool bar.

CS Live has been discontinued.

You need to be specific... Where and what did you download?
