Sidebar not working well

Hi, I am using Mattermost 4.2.3 desktop client on Windows, with Dark theme.

It used to work well until today, not sure why. My sidebar (where all the channels are) used to stay open, which is how I want it, but now it always collapses after use. I can’t find a way to pin it.

Another issue, possibly related, is that I don’t have my user name on the sidebar, where I used to set my status as “do not disturb”, “online”, etc.

Isn’t something missing there on the top? And how can I fix it?

I already upgraded from 4.0 to 4.2.3 but it didn’t fix it. Thanks in advance for any tips.

BTW: the part that I “anonymized” on top is showing the current channel name, not my user name.

Sh*t I just solved my own problem by simply increasing the window width a bit more.

Now the sidebar looks just like it always did.

But I guess this is a bug then - at small widths some of the features simply disappear.

Even if the always-collapsed sidebar is deemed acceptable (I would argue I should be able to see it even with smaller widths), surely losing the user name and the ability to set status, and see account menu, is not good…
