Thumb drive folders behaving oddly

    Running 10.4.9 on a G4 iBook and flat-panel G5 iMac.

    I have a standard USB thumb drive which, along with its folders on the
    disk, opens into a Finder window which has no sidebar on the left.
    Opening folders also now opens separate FInder windows. All other
    folders on the iBook and iMac open within a single Finder window. Can
    some setting have come "unstuck" just for that thumb drive? (I have
    run DiskUtility on the thumb drive and nothing needed repair.)

    This is no big deal, but puzzling.

    I get mixed up on nomenclature, but in OS X a window has a title bar.
    At the right end of the bar is an oval button. That button toggles
    between Classic folders and OS X folders.

    GAWWWWWD, how baby simple. I must have clicked the oval unknowingly.
    HOW can I be the obsessive Mac person that I am and have such a simple
    thing puzzle me. This is a Homer Simpson "Doh" moment.
