I just installed Lightroom CC on my new laptop and the Undo button isn't showing up at the top right as it does on my old one (it's to the left of the Share button, separated by a vertical bar). I can't find a setting anywhere to show hidden toolbars. I can undo from the Edit menu or by pressing CTRL-Z, but I prefer the toolbar button. Any idea how to display the Undo/Redo toolbar?

Jean,

Please go to Help>System Info... and get us the installed Lightroom Version Number. 
Additionally, we will need your OS Version Number.

I'd love to see a screenshot of these undo buttons, as I've never seen them on the desktop. They are on mobile though.

I can see them on Windows but not Mac. I will log a bug for it.

Just a quick question here. For those of you who saw this and then saw it disappear, do you have a tablet attached?

This has been determined to be As-Designed behavior.

If you are not seeing these buttons, you likely don't have your multi-touch device connected,
