    hey all,

    newbie here with a really annoying problem - hope you can help...

    basically this morning, i caught my kids hammering away at my keyboard and they've somehow managed to mess up how my Finder window views...

    at the moment... the sidebar with the shortcuts for "desktop" "applications" "harddrive" etc etc is missing, and i can't find anyway to get it back.. here's a screen grab of what it looks like:

    when it USED to look like this....

    What happens if you click the little clear button in the top right of the window?
