Hi John S.
Not sure what you mean by "buddy".
If you mean your friend closed some panes on the left using the X, have him\her click View>Layout in OE. Select the panes to display then click Apply>OK. For security reasons, leaving the preview pane unchecked is best. If by "buddy" you mean some sort of animated assistant, OE doesn't have one natively and would be a 3rd party app.
