I did read all the notes, links and all the instructions available, but
none gave a hint as to what was actually discovered by accident. When Gimp
opens up the first time, the tool menu covers the entire screen. Since the
tool menu always stays on top, nothing you do is visible and the File, etc.
menu and images are hidden from view. I assumed that by dragging the
visible screen smaller that the entire application was drug smaller, but
it's not the case. When the tools menu is drug to the proper size, all is
visible including the images.
Maybe this is a simple thing which should have been obvious, but I would
not have expected that the tools menu could be drug to full screen size.
At any rate, all is now well. Thanks for hanging in there with me.

It would help a lot if you would also follow the link that I gave you
and read the release notes. When you start GIMP 2.6 there should be an
empty image window. This window has a menubar where you will find the
Gimp-user mailing list
