Latest upgrade

I downloaded U;timate version 28 a couple of days ago with no problem. I have been using it with the Trident engine with no problemm, when suddenly, I opened Avant and was presented with what I can only assume is the compact version (tabs on top, no bar for filr, View, Help, etc.) so I can't find a way to go back to my regular view. The 2 toolbars showing (tabs+ bar with back, forwards, home address and search (which has changed to Bing from my choice, Google). How do I get my Avant back? I've tried downloading 27 with no luck.

I did try search with no luck.

I guess your skin changed also? rightclick the top bar and choose your old skin. If that doesn't fix it i hope you made a backup in the past, so you can put your configuration file back. Tools--> backup/restore profiles

OK.........I seem to have done it again. Something set off the BSOD, which I haven't seen in years (It shrunk) and when I rebooted Avant was back in Compact mode. I can't bring up skins to change to my old one and Compact isn't in "Tools" so I assume this is a new skin. I've right clicked in every bar I see and everywhere else on the screen--no Skins. Help!

Try the the restore button (left of close button) and then rightclick top.

I just notice the whole skin button is gone in the latest version under the new skins, only way to get the skins is rightclicking the top, or F11 or F12 first when your in compact view (full screen/Full desktop), or the restore button and then rightclick top.

Ps, you can also get the skins by Tools (9 dots)--> View (above proxy)--> Skins

None of those worked. nI'm using Series 15 Build 27(lite). I've also tried the full version, so I could try under the different engines. Also switched between IE standards and IeE10 Standards.

BTW, clicking on the Restore button shrinks the Window I'm in. The only was to restore it is to switch between Standards. The is no resize button in the smaller pane.
