Sometimes it is possible for your command line to go missing. Most of the time it is as simple as turning the Command Line back on.
How to Turn the Command Line on
1.) If your command line is off hold down the "Ctrl" button and while stilling holding this down select the "9" key on the Keyboard this should turn the Command Line back on.

2.) This will bring up a message that asks if you are sure you want to turn the command Line off Select Yes and the Command Line is turned off.
However these options are very traditional and many of you likely have seen these before. However there are times when the command line is on but you still cannot get it back. (I find this most of the time when I change Screen Resolution and the Command Line is floating).
How to get the Command Line back when you know it is on but cannot see it
1.) Type CUI and select the <Enter> button on the Keyboard
2.) Under the Customize tab in the upper left under Customizations in All File highlight your current workspace. (See Figure 1).
Note: The Current Workspace will say (current) next to the workspace name.
3.) Once highlighted on the upper right under Workspace Content select Customize Workspace (See Figure 2).
4.) Once you have selected Customize Workspace expand Palettes (See Figure 3).
5.) Select Command Line (See Figure 4).
6.) Change the Orientation to Docked and select your preference Below, Above, etc. (See Figure 5).
7.) Select Done under Workspace Content.
8.) Select OK.
Now your command line should be showing
