Adobe Photoshop CS6 lost colour

weve lost the gradient tool somehow on our adobe photoshop - can someone tell us how to get it back please !

This is for Adobe Elements 10 but it may well work for CS6.
Open any of the other tools.
Across the top of the tweeking window there is a command menu.
At the extreme left hand end there may be a downward pointing arrow.
Select that.
Gives you the option to "reset all tools"
Best of luck :)

gradient tool occupies the same space as the paint bucket tool.

All tools with a little arrow at the bottom right of the icon mean if you click and hold you'll see a bunch of hidden tools.

If we were to uninstall our copy of it and reinstall it - would that change the settings back to the way they were!

Listen to -mung-
If the paint bucket is visible click and hold down to reveal the gradient tool.

http://help.adobe.com/en_US/photoshop/cs/using/WSfd1234e1c4b69f30ea53e41001031ab64-77e1a.html should tell you all you need to know, if what is in that link doesn't gel with what you are seeing on screen, check your colour mode (menu > Image > mode). If it's bitmap, greyscale, duotone or indexed colour, gradients won't work as expected. Ideally you should be in RGB.

Command option shift held down right after starting photoshop start up restores default work space
