Repositioning the Tools in Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop

The Toolbar can be relocated within the primary screen, “docked” to the panels, or moved to a secondary screen. Click-drag the grabber handle at the top of the tools and drag to reposition. 10_10_GrabberHandlecrop

To dock the Tools with other panels, drag until the solid blue line appears and release the cursor.

I prefer to move the panels to the left side of my screen and dock them with the tool box, minimizing the space between the tools, panels, the Options bar, and menus. You can also relocate the Options bar – for example, you may want it at the bottom of the monitor or on a secondary monitor.

    Thank you for doing this, as I have a better working interface on my PSCC. Can I save this or will it save on exit?

      It will save on exit, but you can also save a workspace, making it easier to go back and fourth between different panel arrangements for different tasks.
