Right click any panel header onthe right hand side of the interface, and place a check mark next to "Basic."
Or, press Ctrl-1 (Windows) or Cmd-1 (Mac).
There's also a menu command to view the panel, but I can't remember it and I don't have LR in front of me right now.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!! IT WORKED!!! Thanks,Renéereneebloodphotography.com
