Fix Adobe illustrator toolbar missing. Question: “When I had Illustrator open, I moved my Mac’s view to the widgets desktop. When I went back to the desktop that had Illustrator, the Tools panel and other panels were missing. I went back to the widgets desktop and the panels were there! I could not figure out how to get them back over to the correct desktop, so I closed them. Now, back in Illustrator, I can’t figure out how to open them up again. I’d like to go back to the default setting. Please help!”
