How does one reset this tool bar (command manager) back to factory defaults? Notice the missing icons?
disclaimer: I have not tried this:
Under your customize menu, you have the options to set back to default
Whoops, my suggestion was for menus; Mike's response should be correct. However, if these suggestions don't work, I would suggest a registry reset to clean that back up. Mind you, this will default all custom settings including things like file locations, so make sure you have that information before you attempt.
From this image, it looks like your registry is corrupt because the toolbar flyouts are not defined correctly. You will also be missing buttons like New, Open, Save, etc. from the top bar and flyout buttons from many other toolbars. It is unknown how such registry corruption happens but it is unlikely that it would only be one section relating to the toolbar flyouts so it is best to restore the entire registry relating to SOLIDWORKS for your login. If you have a backup of your setup that you saved using Copy Settings Wizard, then I would restore the backup from that. If not, then As Garrett mentions, you will need to rename or clean out the "HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/SOLIDWORKS/SOLIDWORKS <version>" section from the registry and as long as there is nothing wrong with the installation itself, the registry will be recreated for you with all of the default setup. Then, I would suggest, you do any customization to the setting and UI that you want and make a backup of it using Copy Settings Wizard in case this happens again (in which case, you will then have a backup to restore from). Here is the help topic on Copy Settings Wizard:

If you are unfamiliar with any of these things, I would suggest contacting your reseller to help.
I hope this helps,
We just upgraded several computers with 2015 from 2012. This problem is showing up on several, but not all computers. I have tried deleting the registry key, but still I am coming up with the same problem. Anything else to try? TIA.
Just to confirm, when you were upgrading to you make sure to include the registry fix for KB3072630? In general, this affects add-ins but can be attributed to other issues.
Verified that KB3072630 was not installed when update occurred.
It may sound redundant, but I'd try a repair on SOLIDWORKS (mind you perform everything as admin just for good measure) and if that doesn't kick start it, I'd recommend contacting you VAR.
Yes, It looks like a repair or reinstall is the way to go. I was hoping it was something simple. Thanks Garrett!
