Missing on-screen options.

I'm a new user to the paid for DS and am tryimg to find my way around the latest version.
As far as I know, honest guv, I didn't touch anything!
I've lost the tool commands displayed at the btm of the Drg screen that give command options to activate Snap, Grid, Ortho, & Polar.
There may have been others but these I remember.
They were missing when I opened DS after not using it for a few weeks.
Any ideas what I've done to loose these & how I can reinstate them?
From a web search I found key strokes to use the functions but would prefer to have the simple "tick box's" back if I can.
Any help would be most welcome.

RE: Missing on-screen options.

G'Day 900P,
Some useful Key strokes that might help:-

F5 Switch through ISOMETRIC snap grids (3 off).
F6 Does Nothing.
F9 Turns Normal Snap ON/OFF.
F11 Turns eTRACK ON/OFF.
F12 Turns QInput ON/OFF. Point Data Appears On Screen.

Ctrl 0 Hide/Display Full screen or All Displays.
Ctrl 1 Hide/Display PROPERTIES Display.
Ctrl 2 Changes Properties for a different Screen.
Ctrl 3 -------
Ctrl 4 Exit 'Save changes' alert.
Ctrl 5 -------
Ctrl 6 Hide current work for a NoName_0.dwg
