    Hello @Bridgett.Tedder6491,

    The Navbar should appear at the top of all courses and homepages in Brightspace. It can be either Text-Based or Icon-Based and is identified by the number "2" in the following article.

    If your navbar has "disappeared" as a result of it being deleted accidentally, an Instructor or Administrator for the course may restore it with the following steps:

    1. Navigate to the course or homepage with the missing Navbar.
    2. Make note of the number which appears in the URL address bar.
      1. Example: "https:// <Site URL> /d2l/le/content/123456/Home", here the number which we call "Org Unit Number" would be "123456"
    3. Navigate to any other course where you have access to the "Course Admin" tool.
    4. After navigating to Course Admin, manually replace the number in the URL with the Org Unit Number from your course where the Navbar is missing.
      1. Example: "https:// <Site URL> /d2l/lp/cmc/main.d2l?ou=1111" → "123456"
    5. Assuming your permissions allow it, this will give you access to Course Admin to the course where the Navbar is missing.
    6. In Course Admin, go to "Navigation & Themes".
    7. Under the "Active Navbar" dropdown, select and apply a Navbar to the course where the navbar is missing.

    I hope this helps!
