I have encountered a minor yet very annoying layout view change. All of a sudden my scroll bars in Layout View bars have disappeared. I also no longer have the small layout view, data view, refresh and pause buttons which are normally a part of the the scroll bars. I now have to go to the main menu to switch my view from layout to data. However the scroll bars appear in data view. I probably toggled something off accidentally but where? There must be a simple way to bring them back. Anyone? enter image description here

View menu - Scoll Bars, you'll want to check that option.
