When trying to learn how to select several e-mails to save or delete, I did something unknowingly that 1) put the mail drop-downs above the inbox, so I must point above the inbox to have those drop-sown reappear and 2) puts the desktop and any open files somewhere--hiding behind the e-mail, I think, because the appear immediately once I close e-mail.

This is not what I want! I have 2 monitors, an iMac running Mountain Lion and am using Mail.app (6.5)

Any advice out there to get things back to normal--so the mail drop-downs and the desktop are not hidden?

1) right click on the top bar of Mail and select whichever you want to view instead of the 'Hide Toolbar'.

2) don't understand what you're explaining

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

CL, what OS version do you have? (Are you using Spaces or Mission Control?)

Always include this ^ information with a question. (Not necessarily this ^)
