I just randomly selected Window>Control and it reappeared. I was ready to
try anything.

Quick solution, reset your workspace under Window | Workspace | Reset [name].

 

Or select any existing workspace, then reconfigure and save it.

That didn't do it. I saw Reset Essentals. which brought up a panel on the
right side with some of the same tools, but I am looking to get the bar
across the top back.

Are you on a Mac? I know the application frame is separate on that platform and can be toggled on and off... but I have no idea of the specifics.

No, I'm on a PC. You used to be able to toggle this on and off very easily.
It is one of the most basic tools INDD has. Why would Adobe mess with this?

You got it. Sorry, I misunderstood which element you were referring to. This does come up routinely in questions like yours; the menu item really could have a more meaningful name, I guess.

Thanks. But now I can't get rid of that Essentials Panel. If I go to
Windows>Workspace and click Essentials it does not go away. It is taking up
room on my desktop that I don't want to lose.

Essentials is a workspace not a panel. If you can post a screenshot we might have a better idea of what you're referring to.

Hi @Mesa316,

 

Sorry to hear about the trouble. Could you please share a screenshot of how the window looks on your end? Also, please share the version of InDesign. We'll try our best to assist you with it.

I got rid of that by clicking Windows>Properties. Boy, this is confusing.
But at least things are back to normal.

As Bob says, the entries in that list are workspace configurations, not direct panel/menu controls. Try each of them until you have one that's closest to your liking, then make any changes you like (delete menus and palettes, add them, arrange them as you like) and save it as a custom workspace. Then, whenever anything gets messed up (or you reconfigure things for one project), you can reset it all easily to your exact preferences.
