Launcher Bar and Panel Shortcuts

The Launcher , accessible via Window Launcher and shown in Figure 1-7, provides quick access to Dreamweaver’s primary panels. The small icon in the Launcher bar’s lower-right corner toggles its orientation between horizontal and vertical.

Table 1-4 lists additional ways to access all panels, not just those available on the Launcher. The Objects panel and Property inspector are not included in the Launcher bar by default but can be added using Edit Preferences Panels Show in Launcher. The preferences also affect the Mini-launcher in the lower-right corner of the Document window, which is a more compact and convenient way to access the same options as the Launcher bar.
