    For some reason when I click on application, my applications are now in a folder. Before they where lined up for me to see. Now I must open up the folder before I can choose my app.
    How can I get it back to the way it was?

    Hmm. In mine, there is also a "fan" option. It works least well of all of them, but the others do show everything, and I do not have to open the folder.
