Dear Computer Lady,
I was typing in Word Pad and my tool bar disappeared. Can you please tell me how to get it back?
Thank you so much, Barb
Your toolbar will be simple to get back once you know how it disappeared. This is my best guess how that happened.
In WordPad (Which is included in every version of Windows) there is a small arrow in the upper-right hand corner (just below the X that you use to close the window) If you click on this arrow, it either expands or minimizes the ribbon (what you referred to as a toolbar).
If your toolbar is not displayed, click on this arrow to display it. If you want to hide the toolbar, click again.
I’m guessing that you accidentally clicked on this arrow when your toolbar disappeared.
It’s Your Turn: What do you think?
