This question already has an answer here:

I was trying to save customization templates in QGIS 2.4 and have managed to hide the MENU bar. Now I cannot access Settings->Customization to switch it on again.

I even un-installed and deleted the .qgis2/ folder from my user but it always loads without the menu bar now.

Please suggest a way to get the MENU bar back please.

If you are using GNU/Linux, you can go to /home/USER/.config/QGIS/QGISCUSTOMIZATION2.conf and set:

Menus\mSettingsMenu=true

If you are on Windows (I've tested on Windows XP), you can press Windows+R and execute the command regedt32.exe. This opens the Windows Registry.

Now go to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER
  Software
    QGIS
      QGIS2
        QGISCUSTOMIZATION2
          Customization
            Menus

And set mSettingsMenu to true.


This should make your menu bar visible again. Now, from the Settings -> Customization you can enable the rest of QGIS menus.
