I am following the Adobe InDesign CC classroom in a Book (2019 release) but on the 2020 version of the program.
I would like to see this in the Application Bar:
But instead I see this:
I have not found an option in the Preferences to help me with this.
I have seen that the view options are at the bottom of the Tools but I do not really like them there.

Those icons have all been moved to other parts of the interface. This was discussed when 2020 was released more than 6 months ago.
As I am a new user, would you please be so kind to tell me where they have been moved or to point me to the discussion where this was explained?
I would really appreciate that.
So the basic answer is, "We decided to change a popular interface feature to fit our preferences. If the customer doesn't like it, Tough Cookies!" Let me know if I misunderstood anything.

Such a poor UX-choice imo, one has to navigate so much instead of just clicking in the top bar.

I found the highly useful application bar by switching to the "Advanced" workspace setting. I then changed the vertical Panel Groups to fit my preferences and saved the customized workspace.
