	After contemplation, my reply is:

Thanks Curt,

Siard had the thing right. There was a spin tiller, but because my file
manager window was too small, it wasn't in the picture.

It does beg the question, if that window has always been so small how
did I change the order of the way the file manager presented the
directories and files? There must be a key combination shortcut that
would do it? Maybe?

I mostly use my keyboard.

Thank you again for your reply,
Charlie
