Go to the Layers Panel on the right of your workspace in Adobe Illustrator and click on the arrow next to your Layers to show all the layers listed. Scroll to the very bottom, last layer.

Once you have the last layer chosen (blue dot next to layer should appear). Click on the letter D on your keyboard. Yes you heard that right! Click D on your keyboard.
