How do I restore my Toolbar when I covered it with destop resizing?

Asked by articdisappearing on 2011-03-01

I used a picture for my wallpaper and have covered up my tool bar, I have no access to it via on screen and can not figure out how to undo what I did. I do not even know how to open the 'terminal' more or less commands to use. I can only get online via right clicking the desk top and selecting 'Help'. I might be using the wrong term, I am referring to the menu bar at the top that has the "Appearance,Places and System" selections as well as Date clock and other selections for shutting down the system.
Using an older book I have figured out how to use the 'ALT' plus the F1 key to access the menus; I am still trying to figure out how to restore the Menu Bar to the top of my active workspace screen.

Ctl-Alt-T will pop up a terminal.
run the display settings:
gksudo gnome-display-properties

and change your screen resolution .

If you see a little purple box in the lower left corner, click on that to restore hidden windows and menues

I thank you for your responses but I just went and did a clean reinstall of 10.10 and used my backup from Ubuntu one and a jump drive to reset/replace important files and folders. This solved the problem but is not necessarily the most appropriate method. Thank You again for your help.
