to get that particular view you can click on the icon on the left there that looks like the outliner and perspective view combo

you can also bring it up from the menu at the top somewhere under Window I think.
I've a hotkey assigned to it, alt+ctrl+o, can't remember if i did it myself or if its default...

that's a "Ch" pronounced as a "K"

Computer skills I should have:
Objective C, C#, Java, MEL. Python, C++, XML, JavaScript, XSLT, HTML, SQL, CSS, FXScript, Clips, SOAR, ActionScript, OpenGL, DirectX
Maya, XSI, Photoshop, AfterEffects, Motion, Illustrator, Flash, Swift3D

You did that yourself... I've got Ctrl+Shift+o... obviously the superior choice.
If you ever need to find something, there's an option under the help menu called "find menu" I think which allows you to search for stuff. Obviously you'll need to know some part of what you're looking for, but if you search outliner, you should get to the right spot.
