This just happened tonight. Without warning and for no reason at all, the little triangle next to the folders on the desktop just disappeared. So I cannot easily see the contents of the folders, I have to double click them. But it's only on the desktop, all other folders have the triangles. I only have one display. I checked all the settings I could and did not see anything. I don't even know what those triangles are called.

I am SO STUPID. It's already answered, and it's because I had the "arrange by" set to "name." Someone please delete this!
