  • Missing file menu

    Not sure how I did it, but my BC File menu (the standard windows file, edit, etc menu) is missing and I can't seem to find a way to get it back? I tried right clicking all over the place and non of the available options (or customize) seem to be able to get it back. Little help please!

    It's possible the File menu was dragged off the main window.

    There isn't a command in BC to put it back, but you can reset the File Viewer's toolbar positions by deleting values from the registry.

    Delete the registry key "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Scooter Software\Beyond Compare\FileViewer\Toolbars\MainMenuBar". The next time you start BC it should display the main menu back in the default location.

    Please let me know if deleting the value doesn't bring back the menu.

      That did not seem to work, but when I maximized the application I could just barely see the menu off to the edge of the screen and was able to drag it back on.
