You need to show the toolbar.

Click View/Toolbars/Text Formatting

Press Ctrl B

Long answer

Highlight the text you need to make bold. Press and hold down the Control key marked Ctrl. Press the B key,

the text will become bold is not bold, and not bold if bold, ie it is a toggle. If half (or even a percentage of) of the text is bold before you start, it will make all of the text bold on the first press of B

You can also use Ctrl U for underline and Ctrl I for italics Also right clicking any highlighted text will give you the formatting menu, select as required, bold is under the entry Style.

Hope that helps.

Opp did not read the question fully. Did not realise the you wanted the buttons, check any toolbar by right clicking any toolbar then select customize toolbars. Then you want the Text Formatting Toolbar. Look through that toolbar and make sure that the options, ie bold, are selected.
