Last summer I opened Google Earth to a satellite image, as usual, where the position of the cursor was continuously updated to show long. and lat. in overlay at the periphery of the screen. This also had dots showing where people had uploaded pictures from the location. Now I cannot find either feature. Where do I go for this? Did it die with New Google Maps? To clarify, I first opened Google Maps to the area I wanted (town), then clicked on the "earth" option, which takes me to Google Earth. But now there's no continuous cursory lat/long designation nor are there the circles you can click on to find user photos at the location.

Using Google Earth, the "Status Bar" must be on. When it is activated a continuous display of the latitude and longitude coordinates of the cursor is displayed, along with the "eye altitude."
The Status Bar can be activated within the drop down menu under the "View" tab, the third tab from the left at the top of the Google Earth screen.
