Default sudden green with dog (F3)

I'm looking at a folder in Windows Explorer, as I like it to appear, i.
e. list of files in the right pane, folder tree in the left pane.

I accidentally hit F3 (probably renaming something and I meant to hit
F2). The left pane goes green with a dog at the bottom.

Any quick way to revert? My usual quick ways - Escape, or Ctrl-Z - don't
work; the only way I've found is Alt-V, then Explorer Bar, then Folders,
which is very tedious when It was caused by one keypress.

Click the 'Folders' button in the toolbar? (You'll find the 'Search' button is
depressed after using F3.)

with the "Toys

Thanks - that solved it!

I too use the grown-ups view - but I had customised to leave only Up,
Delete, and Undo buttons, not thinking I'd ever use any of the others.
Now I see a reason for adding a fourth! Thanks again.
