Windows 7: Text options toolbar in Internet Explorer

Text options toolbar in Internet Explorer

I have just helped my wife set up Internet Explorer instead of Chrome which is not supported by our ISP. It's working OK but somehow I cannot find a way of showing the text toolbar (I call it) which allows you to change size of font, bold, italics, color of text, etc. which in the old days appeared as the second or third toolbar from the top.

I appreciate in advance any assistance in making this toolbar appear and usable.

Regards from Ottawa.
