Toolbar resides above the editor and indicates the currently active inline and block formatting, also allowing to toggle and adjust all the formats. You may do the following adjustments:
In order to keep the toolbar tidy, the list of block formats is by default collapsed. In such case, it displays either:
In order to make the editing experience truly seamless, you can control most of formats with just the keyboard — without having to take your hands off in order to grab a mouse or touch a screen.
First off, you may use "classic hotkeys" to toggle inline formatting for currently selected text. Each of these involves holding the modifier key — ⌘ (Command) on Macs and Control on Windows/Linux.
Note that in case of links, you obviously have to fill the target URL but since focus is moved right to the URL input and then returned back to where you were, you still don’t need anything but keyboard. You may also just paste or type the URL and it will be transformed into a link.

For example, writing "This is *some* great stuff" will result in "This is some great stuff" sentence (with the some word bolded).
Similarly, you may toggle most of block formats simply by typing a specific shortcut text at the start of a paragraph.
