My finder looks like this:


If I click on the text 'view', 'action' etc, it shows all the options and I'm able to use it quite normally. What gives?

How do I get the icons + buttons back?

  • Is your issue the fact that there is text instead of icons? It isn't too clear what you're asking here… Mar 6 '17 at 4:20
  • @Jackson1442 I guess I forgot to ask the main question! Have updated it, thanks for pointing it out.

Getting the buttons back is actually really simple:

First, select View > Customize Toolbar... in the menu bar.

Now, just make sure the dropdown (the one outlined in red) has the option you want selected. The default is Icon Only.
