I have always used the "flag" option to tag my favorite pictures to go to later, but for some reason it's no longer there. Did I accidentally press on something that took it away?? Anyone know what I did, and how to get it back? Help!

Question - when you say "it's no longer there", what are you looking for that you're not seeing? If you select a picture and hit "/", you don't get a flag in the upper-right corner? If that's the case, go to View > Metadata Display, and make sure that both Viewer and Browser have the "show metadata" option selected. It looks to me like it might be really easy to hit "y" which turns that on & off in the viewer, and that might be your problem.
