What version of Access? And incidentally, I think you mean "menu bar" not "toolbar". That might help in tracking down the information.

Right click on the menu area and choose customise option. Then click on the (I think) Menu Bar option. Once you get the menu restored change your startup options before closing down. Set startup menu to default and retick all the boxes.

If you can open the customise wizard, try to drag just the tools menu from the list onto the menu area. This contains the startup options and if you can get it you should be able to change them. Then just reopen the application.

In my version, you place a tick by the 'Menu Bar' item after going into Customise then Toolbars.
