When I open the Finder now, for some reason, there is no search bar anymore….
Also, it always opens a new Finder windows, every time I click to open a folder, and this is also new behavior.It did not used to do this, it opened any folder that was inside of another folder in the same window, it did not open an entirely new window for every folder.
Can anyone tell me what has changed please?? I have included a screenshot of what it looks like now, which is a new design, and I would love to get the search bar back somehow. Also, there is a screenshot sowing what it used to look like, which I would like back.
This also happens whenever I open a folder, from the desktop, or elsewhere. There used to be a search bar in the upper right, but it is gone now??
Please explain this for me....

Go into Finder's View Menu and click on "Show Toolbar".
Thank you, but as I wrote, the problem turned out to be the folder itself, and not the settings for Finder, so I believe the problem is taken care of....
SO, I just deleted the folder in question, and moved what was inside of it to a new folder.
Still, I appreciate the help :):apple::)
