Can't find books

I added half a dozen new books to Calibre tonight. I clicked on something which shows a couple of books I have already read in the main screen but I can't get my full list back. I can see 121 under "authors" down the left hand side but don't know how to bring them back up.

1) Is there a value in the Search bar (might show green) Use the back arrow with the x at the end to clear.

2) does the box below the blue i say "restrict to" and there is "all books" to the right and NOT numbers in a yellow blob. To clear the restriction, use the arrow and select the blank entry at the top of the list.

Moved to main Calibre section

Have you managed to activate a search? If so clicking the 'x' to the right of the search input box will clear it.

If it is not that, then posting a screenshot might help us spot what is the issue.

Yeah what they said.

Also, Calibre creates a "date" column that it automatically fills with the date you added the book to the library.

You can sort on that column by clicking the column to set it to 'ascending' or 'descending' dates.

I like to keep mine set so I see all the most recent additions to my library as I am adding books.

Happy Sunday
