I've used DW C6 for years and just switched to CC. In C6 there was a panel below the design/code window that had ways to create hyperlinks, manage spry widget menus, etc. How do I get that showing in CC?
I believe you are looking for the main Properties window.
You can get it open under...
Window > Properties
All of your panels will be found under the Window menu in DW.
You can start with one of the basic Workspaces available (Developer or Standard), then modify it to your needs by following the info here: How to customize the Dreamweaver workspace
