Unable to show suggestions in effects and presets window

I'm a noob.  I must have changed some setting by accident, and AE no longer shows suggested options when I type names into the effects and presets window.  I can't make it go back to what it was formerly doing, which was coming up with a list of possible effects as soon as I started typing anything in.  I can't even get effects to come up after I've typed in the full name of the effect and hit enter.  

 

Thank you for helping!

Check the flyout menu in the top right corner of the panel. You may have enabled some filter setting that automatically excludes stuff. Also of course check the actual folders, whether the presets are present and the program has access to it/ its configuration points to these folders.

I think they show up fine but the size of the tab "Effects & Presets" is too small for them to show on your current interface.

Just place the mouse on this red line and drag down to reveal the Effects & Presets tab more. The results are hiding out there!

Thanks for responding!  I tried to do what you suggested and it wouldn't work, which made me think AE was glitching and reminded me I hadn't tried just closing the program and reopening it.  When I did that, all the effects were back.  So, you really helped me.  I deeply appreciate it!
