I had to re-install DW8 after several years on the same computer. The pull-down menus (CSS, Application, Tag Inspector,Files), the "Manage Sites" button, etc. are now on the left instead of the right of the screen. This is minor, but I can't get used to it. Can anybody tell me how to move all that to the right of the screen. I think I have been through every menu I can find.
Try Window > Workspace Layout > Designer.
I think you've got the default Coder selected following re-installation.
That was it. Thanks!!
