Missing Tabs on ACT! 2013

I recently migrated to a new computer and in doing so all the tabs at the bottom (activities, notes, etc) have disappeared. They do not show in the design layouts either.  How can i get them back.

You could try going to Tools -> Customise -> Reset Menus and Toolbars to see if this brings them back. 

 

Another thing that can cause this problem is when you drag the tabs near the bottom and when ACT is closed you change the screen resolution so that the the tabs become hidden. So if the screen resolution has been changed try changing it to something like 1280x1024 and then open ACT! to see if you then get the tabs back.

There are two possibilities:

 

1.  As was mentioned the tabs section of the display may have been dragged off-screen.  Getting that back should be a matter of dragging it back up into view.

 

2.  If a problem with the layout ...

     Go to Tools, layouts, contact

     Edit then Tabs

     See if the missig tabs are on the left side of the dialopgue box.  If so, bring them back.

 

Hope that helps.
