formatting toolbar not visible - new user, please help

I just downloaded this software yesterday and watched videos to begin to learn today. All looks great! Except, when I enter into the editor, the formatting toolbar is not visible on my view. When I look at the “customize toolbar” option, the default it shows is just fine, it’s just not visible to me. I’m not a techie - any insights into how to make this visible on my screen? Thank you so much! Deb

The menus across the top. You have Format and then Format bar ticked on the drop down menu?

Yes, but the format bar was not visible. I finally figured out I had to add the format toolbar within the main toolbar. Seems odd, but I think I now have what I need. Thank you!!
