Once you create all the Home View panels you need, you can further customize your Home View by arranging those panels.

One of the simplest ways to arrange your panels is to just drag and drop the panels into their proper positions.

You can also resize the panels by dragging the panel borders.

To maximize a panel, double-click the panel's header. To minimize it, double-click the header again.

You can also change the way the panels are arranged in columns by following the steps below:

  1. Click the arrow in the panel header.
  2. Choose One column or Two column from the menu that appears.


  1. Right-click the Home tab on the Navigation bar.
  2. Select Properties.
  3. Click the Display tab.
  4. Click Customize Panels.
  5. Choose the number of columns you want to display and choose which panels will display in which column.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Click OK.
  8. Click OK.
