Can't find File, new file or new folder 'button'

Hello, sorry for a newbie question but sometimes when I open my repl.it file I do not get the most left column where I see my files, and where I can add a new file, or a new folder.

I read something about repl.it having an EVAL mode or a Project mode, and it will show me these options in Project mode. I do not know if this is the reason for my problem. If so, how do I manually put my repl.it file in Project mode so I can see this column with File, new file and new folder again?

Thanks

What language is this in? Some languages (such as python with turtle) don't support multiple files. And also your repl switches to project mode once you create another file, so this shouldn't be a problem.

@Scoder12 Hi, I work in python (version 3). We do not use turtle. When you say 'once you create another file repl switches to project mode' well, the problem is that I can't find a way to make a new file? Also this seems to be a on and off again problem. We work with student and so alot of them have the same stable interface with the files, new files, new folder options, and for some this disappears. Thanks for your reply.

@LiekeSaxion That's really odd. You should post this on https://repl.it/bugs with some screenshots so that the admins see it and can fix it.
