What properties are you trying to learn about? The more detail you include in your statement of the problem, the more likely it will be that someone can offer appropriate suggestions.

Pay very close attention. For example in this screenshot the Property Sheet button is highlighted, which means that it is open, whether you can see it or not.
In this case it's very narrow at the right hand side. If I click the button again, the screen changes slightly:

This is one way to find it, and resize it.
Also make sure you switch to the maximum resolution for your video card / monitor, so you can catch objects that may otherwise be off the screen. The Property Sheet may have been undocked:
