    Have you done a Tools->Options->Environment-> "Reset Window Layout." If that doesn't fix it the option is going to be in that general area.

    Close enough.   I had looked through there pretty well before and couldn't find it.   I ended up finding it in Tools->Options->Text Editor->General->Display: Indicator Margin
