Windows Dev Center

Show, hide or pin a workspace panel (Windows Store apps)

You can use AutoHide to collapse a panel, and expand it only when you need it.

You can also hide all visible panels at the same time. If you do, the panels will collapse, leaving the panel names visible inside tabs along the edge of the workspace. Move your pointer over a tab to make the panel temporarily reappear.

To hide a panel automatically

  • Click Turn on AutoHide 64b86448-cb8a-49f6-b9bd-e5ff603b7ab2 in the top right corner of a panel.

    The panel will collapse, leaving the panel name visible inside a tab along the edge of the workspace.

    Note Note

    You cannot AutoHide the Tools panel.
