Outlook.com - toolbar missing

This seems so simple, but the answer evades me! I've never used this email programme, but my neighbour has been using it for some time. Suddenly, the blue toolbar along the top is missing (it flashes briefly when accessing the page, but then goes). If I access his account from my PC, all is normal, so I guess there's something in the settings, or a shortcut key that's been hit.

Ant thoughts, please?

Thanks Nontek. turns out the problem was the Ask toolbar (how I HATE all the junk that gets download by default). Once I uninstalled that, the Outlook toolbar was visible again.

Didn't think it would take you long to sort it!

Hmm. Longer than I expected!

I thought perhaps it had slipped down the back of the sofa. That's where I always look first.

Ask toolbar comes with java updates unless you untick the box. I detest this practice of attaching toolbars to downloads.
