File/Database/IOpen, select the server, select the database, add bookmark. If you add it to the Workspace, you also need to drag the bookmark to the bookmark bar at the left.

If the workspace is gone, then I would close notes, and rename the bookmark.nsf to bookmark.old in the data directory.

A new one will be created and that should resolve the issue.

If not, also try to rename the desktopx.ndk to *.old and it will be rebuilt ( new blank one )

Also delete the cache.ndk

stop Notes then find the database bookmark.nsf in your local data directory and rename.
Then start notes again and is should build a new bookmark.nsf with the default workspace tab.

you can also click open and then right click on the dropdown box and select restore defaults.

Both options may remove your existing bookmarks
