Left Side Pop-up App Sidebar Suddenly Gone

Hello. I am a Forum and Windows 8 Newb.

I really liked the sidebar that popped up from the left of the screen showing what you had open in Windows 8. Now it's suddenly gone and I don't know why.

Also, I've noticed that when I launch Chrome from the Start page, it no longer opens a Chrome browser independent of the Desktop, as it used to. Now it just opens Desktop and launches Chrome from within there.

I don't know if these two problems are related but I really liked it the way it was before. Any ideas what I may have fouled up?

Thanks!
