Lost my book details column

Have always had as my last column the book details (Cover, description from metadata) on my Calibre Library for the selected book.

Updated to 0.9.27 and lost it.

Uninstalled and went back to 0.9.25, still haven't got that last column.

I have clearly done something daft - can someone please tell me how to un-daft the daft I've done? I've looked in the preferences and cannot see how to do it, and have searched these forums too, to no avail.

P.S. I'm an old lady, pushing 70, fairly non-technical instructions welcomed!

:-)

Do you mean the book detail part on the right of the main window? If yes, please look on the bottom of the window, there are three icons. One of it looks like a book (see picture). Make a click on this icon and you will see the book details again.

You had ne confused.
Details is not a column.
Details is a special (window) Pane.
Others figured it out: The Book Icon at the bottom is a toggle (Show/NoShow)

Thank you so much Alan and Diving Duck!

I am really grateful for that simple solution. Just shows how daft I am - never thought to explore the actual screen icons. :-(

I think we have all been there at some point, sometimes you can't see the wood for the trees.
