Green task bar with minimisebar vanished in VLC

Hi guys, you know the green task bar, or is called a ribbon?- which is at the top of a page that has the minimise icon ( square with a line) in it has vanished from VLC- so when I am watching a vid and want to minimise the page and pause it and go to either a file on my system or the web I cannot and have to quit the video. How do I get this back?- been looking and looking to no avail.

Does hitting the F11 key help ?

Yes! It’s back thanks.
