I have an Access/VBA project project file (.mdb), but when I opened it, the View/Toolbox in the menu was disabled, I could not add textbox on this form. Also, in the code, when I add comment, the comment line I added doesn't change color to green. Could anyone tell what to do to? Thanks.

I am not aware of any feature in Access to enable or disable the toolbox.
If you can get into the form design, I would expect it to be there.
When you right-click the toolbars the Form Design and the Formatting toolbars should be checked. The Toolbox appears on the same menu and should be selecteable as well.

Does the code you are looking at already have comments  appearing in green?
Just to check that you are prefixing the comments with a '
What colour are they showing in?

Just an afterthought- check the Tools>Startup options - everything should be checked.
But if not, close the database and then re-open it while holding the shift key down.
