SharePoint Rich Text Editor Toolbar Missing - Solution

User reported an issue: SharePoint rich text editor toolbar is missing on list columns!
SharePoint Rich Text Editor Toolbar Missing
I verified that the SharePoint list columns are enabled with "Rich Text" capabilities, but still rich text editor toolbars are missing!

Solution: Open SharePoint site in Internet Explorer 32 bit mode! Here is how: Type "Internet explorer" in Start menu, Choose "Internet Explorer" link as in the screen.

Here is the Rich text editor/multi-line column with rich text editing toolbar:

  1. This was unsuccessful with the 32bit version of ie 11. However the rich text ribbon works in both Chrome and firefox.

  2. Not a good solution. You cannot expect users to do this.
