    Hello,

    I have had an app called Total Finder installed, they recently did an update, which caused me to have sidebar problems. I have since deleted this app, because I couldn't work without my sidebar.
    After deleting the app, and re-launching finder, I now have no sidebar, no options, search box or back buttons in my finder window, and my folders open in new windows when the 'always open folders in new windows' box is unticked.
    How can I get my old finder back?

    It sounds to me like you have switched to the simple window view. Just press the oval button on the top right side of the Finder window and the sidebar and the menu items will reappear.

    Hey, thanks, this helps me, too. I've never known how to get out of "simple" mode!
