Appearance Pallete doesn't not appear - Adobe Illustrator Windows

I'm using AI CS and my appearance pallete refuses to show up. I can apply an effect but have been unable to bring up the appearance pallate to remove it or tweak it. This is quite frustrating.

    Default Appearance Pallete doesn't not appear

    I'm using AI CS and my appearance pallete refuses to show up. I can apply an effect but have been unable to bring up the appearance pallate to remove it or tweak it. This is quite frustrating.

    Things I've tried: hiding all the pallates then showing only the Appearance one (just to make sure it wasn't hidden behind something). Although the check mark appears next to the name in the Window menu, I cannot see the pallete.

    I haven't found a way to reset my workspace to try that. Evidently Illustrator is the only app in the CS suite that doesn't all one to save workspaces or revert to a default. Any ideas on how I could do this?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Andrew,

    This sounds as an AIPrefs corruption, see FAQ #2; you can only delete with Illy closed.

    Andrew, you are welcome. Once you have Illy running with your preferred settings it may be a good idea to make a backup of your AIPrefs file (every time you change your settings); then you can just reinsert it instead of rebuilding.
