By chance I was reading the LP Manual and came upon "Toolbar Modes", including a picture of the LP Toolbar which I recognized, and remembered. So I can answer, in part, my question, above. Yes, Joseph, there is, indeed, an LP Toolbar, and you had one after installation when you did not have an LP Icon.
Now, thanks to this forum, I have an Icon and everything is working fine but the Toolbar is no more!
So, I have to ask, again, what to do to see it ?
