Right-click anywhere on the toolbar area, either on a toolbar itself or in the unused portion of the
toolbar space, to bring up the context menu of all available toolbars. Then select any toolbar from
the list to have it appear.

Note that all the buttons may be disabled (as shown in the preceding picture) if you are not in the
right environment context, meaning that you don’t have the right window, editor, or designer
showing to enable the buttons (which is why they were probably hidden to begin with).

But play, experiment, and see if this helps.
