Good news is that they're really easy to get back. "Standard" and "Formatting" are the two toolbars that most people like to have shown. To get them back, follow the steps below:
- Open Microsoft Word
- On the menu, select VIEW and then TOOLBARS
- Click on STANDARD to put a checkmark by it (this makes the toolbar visible)
- Repeat step 2 and select FORMATTING to put a checkmark by it
Rather than follow the steps above, you can also disable and enable toolbars in Word by RIGHT clicking on the beige space under the menu (where the toolbars are, or are supposed to be).
Keep in mind that these steps tend to work in other programs too (like Excel, PowerPoint, and others). So if you ever lose your toolbars, give these steps a try.
