Restore standard screen layout Oct 21, 2019

I do not use Across very often, but I find that pressing an incorrect key sometimes causes the screen layout to change. In my case, I have lost the Search window. How can I restore the standard layout?

or View > Toolbars > Search (a Toolbar icon)
depending on which Search you want to restore.
