Devices Menu Missing

Postby tlwolfe » 29. Jan 2011, 02:33

I very new to this and have a problem. I installed VirtualBox 4.0.2 on my Windows 7 system. I then installed Ubuntu 10.10 as a guest OS. The VirtualBox "devices menu" is missing. Every thing I seem to want to do requires this menu.

Does any one have a solution? I cant find any documentation that give me a hint of what is wrong or what to do.

Can you post a screen shot so we can see what is actually missing?
