Thumbs up Answer: Tool bar keeps disappearing

I'm sorry to hear that you're having trouble with your toolbar in Microsoft Excel 2007. Here are a few steps you can try to fix the issue:
  1. Right-click on the toolbar area and make sure that "Minimize the Ribbon" is not checked. If it is, uncheck it and see if that solves the problem.
  2. If that doesn't work, try resetting the toolbar settings. To do this, click on the Office button in the top left corner of the Excel window, then click on "Excel Options" at the bottom of the menu. In the Excel Options window, click on "Customize" in the left-hand pane, then click on the "Reset" button at the bottom of the window. This will reset all toolbar settings to their default values.
  3. If neither of those solutions work, you may need to repair or reinstall Microsoft Office. To do this, go to the Control Panel on your computer, click on "Programs and Features" (or "Add or Remove Programs" depending on your version of Windows), find Microsoft Office in the list of installed programs, and click on "Repair" or "Uninstall/Change" to repair or reinstall the software.

I hope one of these solutions works for you!

Default Tool bar keeps disappearing

This may be relevant to others but to be exact, I am using excel for Mac 2011.

The top Ribbon kept vanishing for no obvious reason, and the spreadsheet would be welded to the Mac Toolbar. Then I discovered one day that if I use 'Save As' for a spreadsheet and then select the larger 'Save As' window (by toggling using the button to the right of the 'Save As' field), my top ribbon would vanish.

To make it return, select 'Save As' and toggle back to the small 'Save As' window.....as the 'Save As' window reduces, the top ribbon returns and the excel sheet can be moved around the screen again.

Default Unhiding the toolbar

Show collapsed ribbon in full view
If the Excel ribbon is minimized so that only tab names are visible, do one of the following to get it back to a normal full display:

Press the ribbon shortcut Ctrl + F1.
Double-click on any ribbon tab to make the entire ribbon visible again.
Right-click any ribbon tab and clear the checkmark next to Collapse the Ribbon in Excel 2019 - 2013 or Minimize the Ribbon in Excel 2010 and 2007.

Pin the ribbon. For this, click on any tab to temporarily view the ribbon. A small pin icon will appear at the lower right corner in Excel 2016 and 2019 (the arrow in Excel 2013), and you click on it to always show the ribbon.

Unhide ribbon in Excel
If the ribbon is hidden completely including the tab names, here's how you can restore it:

To unhide the ribbon temporarily, click at the very top of your workbook.

To get the ribbon back permanently, click the Ribbon Display Options button in the top-right corner and choose the Show Tabs and Commands option. This will show the ribbon in the default full view with all the tabs and commands.

Hope this helps,
Jerry.
