#571 – Moving Windows Around in Blend

While working in Blend, there are a number of different windows (panels) that you work with.  The image below shows the default configuration, with the Tools panel on the far left, and another panel with Projects/Assets/Triggers/States tabs, etc.

You can move any of these windows around within Blend, except for the artboard (the area in the center of the screen that contains the Design and XAML views.  The artboard will take up all remaining space not used by other windows.

To move a window, left-click and drag it to the desired location.  For example, we can move the panel containing the Objects and Timeline tab, so that it sits below the panel containing the Properties tab.

You can also left-click and drag on a particular tab, to move it to another panel.  (E.g. Move Resources tab down next to Objects and Timeline).
