I am running a locally installed Office Apps -2021 MSO (Version 2202 Build 16.0.14931.20128) 64-bit.

Recently I noticed that my 'Tell me what to do' bar is missing?

Can someone tell me how to enable it? Or even how to access it via a short cut key.

    In recent versions of Word, you can use the Search field on the title bar. By default, that field is displayed, or you can display it by clicking the magnifying glass.

    Hi @Hema

    Welcome to Q&A forum ~

    Please refer to StefanBlom-6438's reply, try to find the Search button on ribbon.

    According to the article "Do things quickly with Tell Me", Search is new Microsoft tool for Office apps that helps you quickly find what you're looking for, from text to commands to help and more.
