I was busily importing and editing graphics on page 68 of a large document, when suddenly the pink margin guides around each page suddenly disappeared!  I was using some keyboard commands and must have accidentally done something ... I have looked at various sections of the InDesign guidelines and have tried several things. Nothing brought them back (yet) & I've reversed each thing I tried in various dropdown menus. Can anyone help me restore those Margin Guides?  I can't work without them. Thanks

That could happen if you switched to Preview mode. Pressing the letter W toggles between Normal and Preview mode.

That didn't do anything in Windows. But you inspired me to check everything in View. I found Normal and Preview under Screen Mode.  I have temp. switched to Normal, which covers the entire screen (even the white board) with 1/8" grids/graph paper. 🙂  And that also contains the pink Margin Guides.  It's a temp. fix until I find out what I accidentally did. Thanks.

Thank you @Steve_Werner, pressing W brought them back. I must have pressed it while trying to press SHIFT + W to enter presentation view. Thanks!!
