- Dock Window – To dock an open or floating panel window to its original position.
- Auto Hide – To “auto hide” a panel so that only a tab name will display. Click on the tab name to have the panel contents displayed. Click on the Auto Hide icon to revert back to the default panel display.
- Hide – To hide or “close” a panel. (To have the panel displayed again in its default position, go to Windows on the top menu bar and select the checkbox of the relevant panel.)
