Probably a silly/easy Safari Question

[MAC Filter] Why is my Safari doing this weird "roll up" thing that I don't know exactly what to call and how to I make it stop? (Pics Inside)

Max OS X 10.7.3
Safari 5.1.3

Safari has started "rolling up" to hide the bookmarks bar and my um... information bar at the very top of the screen. I don't know what it's called - the bar with the clock and wifi indicator, spotlight, etc.

I want Safari stop doing this and I want to always see that top bar with the clock. I find it incredibly annoying but I don't know what to call it to google the problem. I've looked through all the preferences, no go. I haven't changed any settings, it just started happening all the sudden a few days ago.

I've taken screen shots to show you what it's doing & what I want it to look like.

As a side note, I noticed that iTunes started doing the same thing so it may be a systems preferences thing, but I can't find any options that would fix this.

You're in full screen mode. Press escape.

(Control-command-F toggles between windowed and full-screen.)

Safari is in Full Screen mode. See the blue icon in the very upper-right when you mouse near the top of the screen? Click that and it'll go out of Full Screen mode. A similar-looking icon is in the upper right of any window that can go Full Screen. Maybe you accidentally clicked it.

Oh, THANK YOU! I knew there was an easy answer I was missing. Indeed I was in Full Screen Mode. ::color me embarrassed::

For future reference, the thing that goes all the way across the top with the clock etc. is called the "menu bar".
