So I jus purchased Dreamweaver 2020 becuase it make the code editing much easier in terms of the basic word processing and appearence of the html pages I maintain. So there is no attributes or properties toolbar to be found. I am not sure if that is the correct term or not. I used to have a toolbar with the following:

 

left or right or centered

font

text color

text size

background color

a link to click to insert an image

etc.

 

That is not anywhere that I can find and the only reason I personally use Dreamweaver. I am a self taught entirely non-legit website designer simply making basic word processing changes to pages. I am not going to userstand geek-speak and instructions that assume I have any level of expertise. I am frustrated that this most basic of editing tools is simply not already on the page that I view when I open a file. Nor is it located in any intuative location at any of the links at the top of the page. Not in View, Insert, Tools or Window that I can find.

 

Thanks for any direction anyone can offer.

To access most of what you're looking for, go to Window > Properties to open the Properties window. From there, some items will be accessible when you click the HTML button, others will be accessible when you hit the CSS button (both in the Properties window itself).


You may also like to add the Insert Window (Window > Insert) as a toolbar across the top of your application. Once the window is open, click and drag the named tab of the window to the top of your application frame, when you see a blue highlight, release it and it will lock as a toolbar.

That will give you a button for adding images, common HTML and a lot more.

Click on Window-->Properties and then select the text area in live/design view.  The CSS tab of the Properties window has everything you need to manipulate text.

 

Images are Window-->Insert or just Insert from the top menu.

Many things have changed including workspaces, menus and toolbars.

 

There are 2 Workspaces: Developer or Standard.  Pick one and customize it to suit your needs.

https://helpx.adobe.com/dreamweaver/using/dreamweaver-workflow-workspace.html

 

Go to Window > Properties.  The properties inspector is divided into 2 types: HTML and CSS.

 

Go to Window > Toolbars.  there are now 3 toolbars:  Document, Standard & Common.

 

Work through some getting started tutorials to familiarize yourself with the new DW CC interface.

You know I do appreciate any response.  I do. However, an apparently universal stumblingblock that IT people have is the inability to dumb down instructions so that a non IT person can actually get from here to there. This despite the fact that I mentioned that I would not understand geek speak.
 
I first found Dreamweaver nearly 20 years ago. You know it was set up already with the basic editing tools and buttons that a guy like me could stumble through and figure it out. I did it without any help. Trial and error. So now Dreamweaver has matured to the point where all those once already included basics are buried in there, plus likely 1000 more. All these things can easily be brought in so they can be used if you are a tech professional. Which I am not.
 
A guy like me is simply pushed away from using the product because it is not intuitive to someone like me. In order to do anything at all, I have to have some more advanced level of experience. This is not the best model for success because it discourages sales. It leaves me still frustrated and unable to make this once simple, usable product work.

We are all product users just like you.  We don't work for Adobe.  And while I can't speak for others, I assure you I am no IT person.   The replies you received here were very straightforward.  What don't you understand about them?   See screenshot.
