I'm guessing you're using X-Plane 10.51 and not X-Plane 11. :)

If that is the case, please go to the net settings screen and make sure nothing is checked. Sometimes people see this if they have multiplayer enabled--then the enter key brings up chat instead of ATC.

Nothing is checked and it is still just a bar

Check if XSquawkbox (VATSIM). or X-IVAP (Ivao) or PILOT-EDGE (i.e. Any sort of online multiplayer plugins) are installed. You will likely know if you recently installed them.

These online gaming plugins override X-Plane's ATC (naturaly, as all these above plugins let you use an real/human online ATC, and not XP's built in one)
