I am a new user and I'd like to keep the graphics window from being on autohide. I always need to click on the "graphics" button on the far right side to make the graphics window re-appear. Or, is there a way to undock the graphics window to keep it open?

That's part of the problem...I do not see that small pin icon.

First dock it, Click and hold on the Outline bar. That should give you a small circle and 4 arrows as seen in the figure. Move your mouse and drop it on the top one or one of the 4? I see a pin in the image you posted? Does it disappear? Did you already try reset layout?

Are you looking at the pin on the "outline" menu? I can see how to move that window have it docked/undocked.
I cannot grab/select the blue ribbon of the graphics window. I just tried resetting the layout. You can see that the outline window is there with the pin button. I must click on the graphics button to have the graphics window re-appear. But if I do that, it does appear, but let's say I then click out of that window and into some region of the outline window, the graphics window goes away.

I see what you are saying:
When you click on the pin, it should toggle between the Autohide modes:
Can you try double clicking on the little blue bar that says Outline. I just tried that and it docked the window for me.
If this doesn't work, go to Workbench and try 'Reset Workspace' and 'Reset Window Layout', then re-start WB and see if this fixes it?
It that doesn't work as well and if you are using Windows, close WB, open up file explorer and reset your appdata:
and rename the folder of the version you are using, looks like v191 to v191.old
Hopefully, this fixes the problem.

I don't think I am explaining myself clearly. It's not the outline window that is the problem, it is the graphics window. That one seems to behave separately from the outline window. How can I manipulate just the graphics window? Can it be undocked? What if I want to move the graphics window to the left side of the screen? I can make the graphics window large or small, but I cannot move it freely.

I know what you mean, it looks to me that you might have undocked and set different dock targets, something like this:
Typically when this happens, pinning everything back in or using the reset layout fixes all tabs for me. If reset layout isn't working for you please try removing/renaming the appdata as I previously mentioned.

As Sandeep mentioned, you can always manipulate graphics window and also reset layout.
But why do you want to manipulate graphics window? Is there any specific reason that default layout is not working?

Can you please explain how and where you reset %appdata%ansys

If you put %appdata% into the search in File Manager you want to then remove (or rename) the ansys folder that comes up in the results.

March 22, 2021 at 10:51 amRobAnsys EmployeeNo worries. I just put %appdata% into the search box for C: and wait, check you can see the hidden files, my files are in nC:\Users\userid\AppDatann
