Floating toolbarThe toolbars are dockable, meaning that you can drag the toolbar's handle Drag by  left end of toolbar one to any edge of the window. Or you can leave it undocked as a floating toolbar. To dock a floating toolbar again, drag the title bar to the window edge. You can also double-click a toolbar's title bar to redock it.

If there is room, you can slide a docked toolbar left and right by dragging on the handle on the left.

Toolbar - right end arrows mean more buttons If the toolbar is wider than the window, the right hand buttons will be out of sight. The right end of the toolbar will show >> two greater-than signs in this case. Double-clicking a blank area or the bar's handle will undock it so you can access the hidden buttons.
