Using dockable windows

Contents[Hide]

1. Overview

A set of tabbed windows are docked along the bottom and right sides of most editor screens.

2. Expand and collapse

There is often one window expanded by default, such as the Explore window, while the others are collapsed.

When the windows are collapsed, click any of the tabs to make it the active one and expand it.

4. Minimize

Each window can be independently minimized and removed from its docked side.

To do this, click the Minimize icon of a tab (regardless of whether it is active or not).

Windows may minimize themselves automatically if you switch to a small screen such as a mobile device, or resize your browser window.

To restore a minimized window, go to the status bar and click its icon to the left of the name of the file you're working on.

5. Change the docked location

Reposition a docked window by dragging its tab from one side and docking it to another side.

For example, drag the Properties window and dock it to the bottom instead of the right side.
