  • Lost Menu bar, retained preferences

    Some time back the menu bar disappeared, I cannot see how to restore it.
    Thinking that upgrading would solve the problem I uninstalled BC2 and rebooted. After restarting, downloading and installing the latest version, first all my preferences were still there, so the uninstall was somehow incomplete, and second, still no menu bar!

    If there is at least one menu bar left, you can right click on the menu and select View, Actions, Sessions, File Filters, or Windows to make the toolbars display.

    Reinstalling Beyond Compare updates the software, but it won't change your personal settings.

    To delete your menu settings (and reset them to default), delete the following registry entry:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Scooter Software\Beyond Compare\FolderViewer

    This should make the default toolbars show up in the Folder Viewer again. Please let me know if deleting the value from the registry doesn't help.
