The visibility of each of the three Amarok panes is indicated in the '''View''' menu bar (part of the top-level menu, shown below). At the top right-hand of each pane are two clickable boxes, indicated with blue arrows in the image below. These two boxes allow you to rearrange or customize the layout of your Amarok window. Clicking the X closes that particular pane. Having been closed, a pane can be activated again by clicking the appropriate radio button in the '''View''' top-level menu bar. Clicking the hollow symbol on the left of the cross causes that panel to be undocked, so it will appear as a separate window on your desktop. Repeating this action on the undocked pane will dock it again inside your Amarok window. You can drag the panes inside your Amarok window, thus reordering them. You can also choose between two layouts of the Toolbar by clicking the appropriate item in the '''View''' menu bar. If you are satisfied with the layout inside your Amarok window, you can lock this layout by clicking the appropriate item in the '''View''' menu bar. You may stack the panes, or even put one or two of them covering the others, selectable by tabs. Be aware that if you want to be sure your layout is preserved when you shut down your session, quit Amarok first by either choosing Quit from the main '''Amarok''' menu, or <keycap>Ctrl+Q</keycap>.
