How to bring back sidebar and drop stack?

I tried PF8 when it first came out, did not like the changes too much, and so reverted back to PF7.

Lately I've noticed PF7 is becoming a bit unstable on OSX 10.14.5.
I'm not blaming Cocoatech for this, since PF7 is no longer maintained, but it does mean the option of staying on PF7 is looking less viable.
So now I'm giving PF8 another trial...

Straight out the gate, I have acidentally closed the drop stack in the sidebar, and cannot not find a way to restore it.
In trying to fix this, I've also hidden the entire sidebar altogether (with Shared, Favorites etc), and can't find a way to bring that back either.
How can I bring this back? I;ve only used it for 5 minutes, and basic usability is already feeling kinda painful

Finally I noticed earlier that 'hiding' sections in the sidebar such as 'Recent Documents' doesnt actually hide them, it just collapses them.
Is there any way to actually hide them (once I get the sidebar to reappear that is)?

    Ok ignore that. I've figured out you need to go to Window -> Modules and drag the sidebar back (then same for Drop Stick).

    If there's a way to actually remove sections from the sidebar (rather than just collapsing them), please could you let me know? Thanks

    Ignore that too. Just drag the sections out onto desktop and they disappear.

    Actually, I'll just close this discussion because Im starting to make a fool of myself :D
