Action bar is not showing

For some reason, my app layout does not have the action bar at the top. Not sure what is wrong. I am currently using the default AppTheme. What can i do?

Hi. If you mean the app bar and bottom navigation bar are not showing up in the layout editor in Android Studio, just click on the "eye" icon (View Options, at the top-left, next to "Palette") and select "Show Layout Decorations".

Hope that helps :)
