Unhappy Starting with Maya

on a side note. how the hell to you open up windows like the toolbar after you close them???? i know its simple but right now im totally intimidated.

thanx.

Look at the very top for the menu item Window, then go to UI Elements, here you can show or hide the various interfaces. When you learn to use the spacebar, you can go to Hide UI Elements and have just a viewport Hold the spacebar down and see what I mean
