In WordPress 4.7, the core developer team decided to make various changes in the editor (TinyMce WYSIWYG), including removing the underline and justify buttons and rearranging some of the toolbar buttons. If you don’t want to change the way you edit your content and/or don’t want to confuse your customers with a new contribution interface, there is a simple and lightweight plugin that will set the editor style back to its previous state.

3 options are available for the Editor style:

Default without underline justify buttons b web - Missing the Underline and Justify Buttons in WordPress
Default – without underline & justify buttons
Re add underline justify buttons b web - Missing the Underline and Justify Buttons in WordPress
Re-add underline & justify buttons
Re add underline justify rearrange b web - Missing the Underline and Justify Buttons in WordPress
Re-add underline & justify + rearrange

Installation

  1. Upload and activate the plugin (or install it through the WP admin console)
  2. Go to Settings -> Writing and select the option you want under “Editor style”.
  3. That’s it, it is ready to use!
