Opening a tool in a new window

Note: This article has done its job, and will be retiring soon. To prevent "Page not found" woes, we're removing links we know about. If you've created links to this page, please remove them, and together we'll keep the web connected.

You can open any workspace tool in a new window. This can be useful in a couple of ways:

  • You can quickly focus on a specific tool without the distraction of other panes, such as the panes for the Workspace Content and Workspace Member lists.

  • You can have several tools open simultaneously even if they belong to different workspaces.

To open a tool in a new window, click the View tab, click New Window, and then click Selected Tool.
