I'm going out on a limb here and saying that you are talking about in the preview shown in Android Studio when on the Design tab of an xml file??

If so, then the status of the display for the 'preview' is set by the drop downs directly above it. The buttons from left to right are:

  • Configuration
  • Virtual device
  • Next state (rotation)
  • App theme <---- this is the one you want to click on
  • etc..

This only affects the preview, so choose a theme that includes the nav bar like:

Material Light > Material.Light.DarkActionBar

Nav bar should now show. Hope this helps :)
