I use a lot of shortcuts (saved in the toolstrip) - to load projects, run commands, etc. They were all there yesterday before I shutdown my computer for the day. I logon this morning and they are all gone. Even the shortcuts tabs was hidden. Does MATLAB store those as .m files somewhere and I accidentally renamed a directory MATLAB was pointing to? Any help would be appreciated. I did not have backup m files of a lot of the scripts.

On windows OS, shortcuts are saved in "shortcut.xml" file which can be found in

Perhaps all you have done is hiding the shortcut toolbar. Look in the "Layout" entry in the toolbar of the command window.
