Simple problem?
Hello everyone, I'm new to Maya (using 4.0) and seem to have lost the menu in each view pane that has "view", "shading", "lighting", "show" and "panels" as the top menus. I am guessing this is really simple to solve but I just cannot figure out where to go to turn the menus on again.

Thanks in advance for your replies.
Heres a little picture to show what menu's I am on about:

Shift-m toggles panel menus. Also, in Windows > Settings/Preferences > Preferences, you can toggle panel menubars in the Interface catagory.
