FL Studio panels are located at the top of the screen in the Tool Bar area, and provide quick access to many commands and options. Many of these commands are also available in FL Studio menus and windows.


  • Moving panels - The panels behave much like standard Windows toolbar controls - they can be reordered in any way, undocked and docked to the top or bottom of the screen by dragging the handle located in the left side of each panel. NOTE: If panels are Locked they will not be movable, Right-click on the panel dock OR use the Menu > View > Toolbars and de-select 'Lock' if this is the case.

  • Display / Hide panels -To hide or show toolbar panels, Right-click on the background rail/dock strip and select from the pop-up menu OR use the Menu > View > Toolbars options. Panels that are visible are preceded by a check mark. Checking 'Lock' will lock the panels into position so that you can not move them by accident.
  • Right-Click Controls (on empty area)
