Right-click anywhere in 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 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, designer showing, to enable the buttons (which is why they were probably disabled to begin with).

But play, experiment, and see if this helps.

Happy Programming! =)
