I closed a side panel I had, where I had a list of layers and which I used to switch on and off layers, and I cannot find how to get it back. I have tried all the buttons I could think of, but I cannot see it again.

Can someone help?

View > Panels and tick "Layers" worked for me – user34581 Jul 15 '14 at 23:29

View -> Panels and tick 'Layers'. :)

We're looking for long answers that provide some explanation and context. Don't just give a one-line answer; explain why your answer is right, ideally with citations. Answers that don't include explanations may be removed.

Thank you. I had tried this but it did not work. I had to close the programme and reopen it, and now it works. Thanks again – Cecilia Apr 13 '12 at 8:32
It would be good to note any default keyboard shortcut here too (I'm currently failing to find one) – Rostranimin Dec 17 '14 at 13:00
