I love PowerGUI, it’s my ISE of choice (other ISEs are available).
I’ve recently upgraded to version 3.7 and a strange problem cropped up – the menu bar has disappeared.
Hot keys (Ctrl+N, etc.) still work but no menu, very annoying. Uninstall does not fix the issue.
Fortunately a skim around the profile folder in Windows helped me to locate the file “BarManagerLayoutFile.XML” which seemed a likely candidate for fixing this.
Profile folder is here, by the way…
I looked around the file and could not easily locate a key called “showthefrikkinmenu” so (after backing it up) deleted the file in the hope that it would be re-created on next start of PowerGUI.
Lo and behold, re-start of PowerGUI gave me my menu bar back and re-created the XML file.
