A normal Finder window used to open when I pressed Option + Command + Spacebar but not its a Search window. I know this happened once and I found how to fix it but I can't find it anymore.

    Command + Option + T makes the sidebar appear again – PsaeBrail May 15 at 22:26

look in system preferences > keyboard > shortcuts pick spotlight. see Show Finder search window. maybe it got unchecked?
