Not sure if you're refering to the folder tree, or the task pane.
Anyways, here's the solution to both:

To get the folder tree in the left pane, select View>Explorer Bar>Folders
To get the Task Pane back, you need to go to Tools>Folder Options, and select the "Show Common Tasks in Folder" option.

Hope one of those are what you were looking for.

it also sometimes goes away when you shrink the window to a certain width

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
