Use SetOptions[EvaluationNotebook[], ShowGroupOpener -> True] to show the opener icon next to the first cell in a cell group. –  kguler Aug 15 at 20:49

Also have a look at Opener and 'OpenerView' –  Jens Aug 15 at 20:57

Several ways to make the opener icon for cell groups visible:

You can set the ShowGroupOpener to True for the current notebook using

SetOptions[EvaluationNotebook[], ShowGroupOpener -> True]

If you want the icon to show in all notebooks in the current front-end session use

SetOptions[$FrontEndSession, ShowGroupOpener -> True]

To get the opener icon showing in all later sessions, use

SetOptions[$FrontEnd, ShowGroupOpener -> True] 

Alternatively, you can use the Option Inspector under the Format menu and change the value of ShowGroupOpener under Cell Options >> Display Options to True

I suggest you add that you can also do this at the Style Sheet level. +1 –  Mr.Wizard Aug 16 at 5:18
    
@Mr.Wizard, I am drawing a blank on how to do this using StyleSheets. If you don't mind could you please suggest a way or post a seperate answer? –  kguler Aug 17 at 2:11
    
I mean that you can set ShowGroupOpener for a StyleData cell in a style sheet to add an opener to all cells of that style. You could of course also create a new style, inheriting from an existing one if needed, that has an opener, then adding an opener is as easy as setting a style (which can be assigned a keyboard shortcut). –  Mr.Wizard Aug 17 at 5:38
