What happened to my Excel function argument hints?

Last Modified: 2017-03-31
This has been going on a while, but when I try to enter a function in a cell, that I no longer get the list of arguments required.  I still get the list of available functions, but when I choose one, it doesn't tell me what arguments are needed.

How can I get that functionality back?

Thanks! I think I accidentally turned it off when trying to get rid of the annoying little copy/paste bubbles.
