Customizing Task Pane Tabs

You can reorder, show, or hide tabs in the Task Pane. You can also specify the default tab that opens when you open the Task Pane.

To customize the Task Pane:

  1. Right-click any Task Pane tab or the header of the Task Pane and click Customize.
  2. In the Customize dialog box, do the following:
    • To show or hide Task Pane tabs, select or clear check boxes.
    • To reorder, drag the tab titles.
    • To specify a tab as default, under Default, click the corresponding button.
  3. Click anywhere in the graphics area to close the Customize dialog box.
    The SOLIDWORKS software saves the new settings. When you relaunch the software, the Task Pane tabs use the customized settings.
