I accidentally hit an unknown key and made the task bar and tool bar disappear on my screen and I need to have them showing at all times. What can I do to return my screen to normal? Thank you.

Im sorry to hear that you are having this issue. let me help and add some tips

Put the mouse pointer on the bottom border of your screen.

If the pointer turns into a double-arrow (double Arrow Pointing up and down), click and drag upwards.
If your taskbar isn't hiding at the bottom of the screen, try moving the mouse to the right, left, and top edges, looking for the double-arrow.

Press the Windows logo key and the P key on your keyboard to bring up the presentation display mode options.

Make sure "Computer Only" is selected.
Use the arrow keys to toggle between options and Enter to select the correct display mode.

Press the Windows key on the keyboard to bring up the Start Menu

Right-Click on the taskbar and select Properties.
Toggle the 'Auto-Hide the taskbar' checkbox and click Apply.
If it is now checked, move the cursor to the bottom, right, left, or top of the screen and the taskbar should re-appear.
Repeat step three to return to your original setting.

Open the Task Manager using either Ctrl+Alt+Del or Ctrl+Shift+Esc.

Click the File menu and select New Task.
In the dialog box, type 'explorer.exe' to restart the process.
