I am Vinod. I will try my best to help you resolve this issue.


What I understand is you cannot find the address bar when you open the webpage, correct?


Is the problem on the Safari browser?


Thank You

Thank you.

Let's open safari. Now you will find an apple icon to the top left corner of the computer, followed by safari, file, edit, view etc.

Click on View > Customize toolbar.

Now you will the address bar there. Just drag it from there to where you need it in the browser.

Let me know.

Can you be more specific

Lets take it one step at a time.

When you open safari, do you see an apple icon at the top left corner of the computer screen followed by menu items such as safari, file, edit, view etc?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

yes, but i don't know what to do next

No problem. Just click on the "view" menu there and then on "customize toolbar".


Do you see the address bar sitting there?


just drag it out of there and place it into the position where your address bar is missing

I'm back and ready to go.When I press on customize the tool bar, I get a drop down of "drag your favorite items int the tool bar" Directly above that is an empty grey colored bar.

Please give me 10-15 minutes. I am outside having dinner. I will reply as soon as I am back home.

Sorry to keep you waiting.

Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX am back.

So you don't have anything there to drag? Have you checked this video on how to drag from customize toolbar?

If it does not work, let me know and we can reset the safari to see whether that works.

Thank you for all your suggestions. The video at the end did the job. The voice sounded like that of a young person. As the saying goes, "and a child shall lead them".


Thanks for your patience.
