Hi @MilenaVelcheva,

 

Your screenshots appear to be taken with a part open (left) and with no parts open (right).

 

There's nothing to restore, it just depends on the current 'state' of NX - whether parts are open in the session or not.

 

Regards, Ben

If that's the case, I would not expect "print" and "export" to be available. If there are no open parts, what is there to print or export?

 

And in the pic on the right, you can see the triad in the corner of the graphics screen.

 

@MilenaVelcheva, have you changed roles or done any customization recently?

The titlebar of the program indicates that you are in the "viewer" and not in full CAD mode.

@cowski1 is correct.  NX is in viewer mode.  Is the user double clicking a part to open NX?  I believe this might keep opening NX in "viewer" mode.  Can the user select "NX 11.0" from the Windows > Start menu (unless they're using Windows 10 - in which case they'll need to select the NX 11 tile (note NX 11.0 Viewer in each screenshot which is what is currently being used):
