Any window with a title bar can be dragged into a floating position or be docked. When dragged the window's potential position is shown as a square "rubber band", and if you let go of the left mouse button, the window will take this position. If the cursor is over a docking icon (circled in illustration), the window will be docked, unless the icon is ghosted (greyed out).

The tab icon in the middle of this cross

docks the window behind another docked

window, accessible by a tab.

Clicking the pin into a vertical position will hide

a docked window behind a tabbed border each time the

cursor is moved away from it.
