Hi!  My status bar has disappeared and for the life of me, I can't restore it.  I have cycled through the F key button and still no success.  In fact, in order for my layers panels to show, I have to cycle to where the exit, iconify and enlarge buttons are not visible.  Any steps I can take to restore the status bar?  Thanks!

Have you tried hitting tab?

If that doesn't work, can you screenshot your window so we can see which status bar(s) you mean?

I have a Mac laptop running El Chapo and Photoshop cc. It is under 6 months old, and has 8GB of RAM. Its hard drive has 259GB free out of 500GB. The last time I shut down was earlier today. I rarely run a cleanup program.

You're here so we can check what colour space you're working in. This is crucial to everything you do in post-processing.

Open your photo (the one you were working on when I sent you to this article) in Photoshop or Elements. You must make sure it's the ONLY photo you have open. Close all others.

Click the little black arrow at the bottom left corner and choose "Document Profile":

******* My image does not have that scroll bar to make adjustments.  That is the bar that has disappeared.*******

When you do that, it'll tell you the colour space and bit depth of your file. What does yours say?

Ah gotcha. And, similar to what Damien said, have you tried resetting your workspace? 

Or at least restarting your computer again?

Yes I have a few times.  This happened once before and Adobe support had to fix it.  Unfortunately they are closed on weekends. My computer crashed  and I had to backup to a previous state that did not show the status bar

And what happens if you click the green circle at the top left when that bar is showing (like in the first screenshot of your second set of screenshots)?

I thought that might be the case, but had to get on my computer to figure out which of the maximize buttons would do that to my PS. :)  Glad it was something simple!

NOW go through the troubleshooter and fix your color space and bit depth problems. :D

Photoshop changed the way the color profile settings look and is a bit confusing.  Below are my settings. I am trying to align as specified in the layers and masks course.  Please let me know if this is correct.

And you've gone through the troubleshooter now, I trust, and fixed things?  Because you were in AdobeRGB and 16 bits, and the Color Settings window isn't where you fix that. :)
