  • $\begingroup$ You can click and drag the small triangle in the corner of the windows (toolbars) to collapse them. docs.blender.org/manual/en/dev/interface/window_system/… youtu.be/4q6mLdO1E4Q $\endgroup$ – AshKB Sep 7 '18 at 15:50
  • $\begingroup$ That doesn't work. It just makes duplicate toolbars within the area. And the video doesn't hide the toolbars I highlighted in red. $\endgroup$ – LuckyCOINNNN Sep 7 '18 at 15:58
  • $\begingroup$ Keep the courser in 3D window and press ctrl+spacebar it will hide all the windows. Its toggle key $\endgroup$ – atek Sep 8 '18 at 12:38

Click and drag the corner triangles in the direction you want them to collapse. This might help. enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ this SHOULD work.. I can slide the panel down, but can't slide my 3D view to the right. I would record my screen but I don't have the software/equipment. $\endgroup$ – LuckyCOINNNN Sep 7 '18 at 16:16
  • $\begingroup$ Try collapsing the Dope sheet and timeline first, and then perform the steps mentioned in my answer. Blender's youtube channel has some good beginner videos regarding this like this one youtu.be/Yb00Tuv0Rhw?t=397 $\endgroup$ – AshKB Sep 7 '18 at 16:36
  • $\begingroup$ I think I did that somehow by mistake and it suddenly worked. Tried YT but didn't see one that specifically mentioned my problem. Thanks anyway. $\endgroup$ – LuckyCOINNNN Sep 7 '18 at 16:39
  • $\begingroup$ Actually, it is not you fault since many beginners suffer with the same problem like yours because blender's interface is not that intuitive in this regard. I would suggest you to spend some time practising collapsing/expanding windows. $\endgroup$ – AshKB Sep 7 '18 at 16:44

There is another way. You can also do this:

  • $\begingroup$ This is the point. You can't drag a panel over a junction between two other panels. $\endgroup$ – Robin Betts Sep 8 '18 at 11:20
