In my Image Editor there is a "hamburger menu" (the icon with three horizontal lines in a stack) that I customized in Blender 2.79 or earlier on a computer with a smaller display. Now I've decided I want to get rid of the hamburger and keep those menu items expanded instead (so that I can see the asterisk that appears by Image* when an image file has been modified since last saved).

Blender Image Editor Hamburger Menu

Maybe this type of collapsed hamburger menu is not used anymore in recent versions of Blender. I'm not sure. I don't see an option in the menu to expand it again.

How do I revert this part of the menu to the default view? I don't want to load factory settings just to revert this one part of the interface.

Right click on it, and in Header, check "Show Menus".

    $\begingroup$ Thank you! 👍 It had been so long, I couldn't remember how I collapsed it to begin with! $\endgroup$
