Open up Windows Explorer or My Computer. Now, Right-Click on the Toolbar at the top where you normally saw the button you're missing. You'll get a menu. Click on "Customize". You'll see "Current Toolbar Buttons" on the right side of a two-sided box, and "Available Toolbar Buttons" on the left.

Find the button(s) you're missing on the left and add them to the "Current" side. Then close up the box and see if you got what you were missing back.
