Hello Adobe. Why on earth did you remove the add or substract points pen tool options? The longstanding keyboard controls for add or substract the pen tool are not working either. The tool is unusable without these controls.

This is from version 26.5.

Are you using the basic toolbar by any chance (Window > Toolbars)?

Hi. You can decide which tool to show and which to hide. The easy way is select the Basic or Advance toolbar as Doug said or customize them Window > Toolbars > Manage Toolbars.

Thank you so much Marlon! I was have a tough moment because of business presures and my reliance on Adobe's apps for my productivity.
