There should be the scene collection

There should be a list of all the items and their properties here. I don't know if there's a way to bring it back

I don't need the N panel, I need this one:

  • $\begingroup$ Dude, I don't need the N panel. I need the big panel with all the items etc. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Ah! That's the outliner and properties panel. Looks as if you've gone full screen with the 3D view so Ctrl-Space should toggle back to the normal layout. $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


I've found a way to do it: (Try pressing Ctrl+Space before repeating that since you could have accidentaly gone fullscreen)

  1. Point your cursor to the right bottom of the blender window untill you see a crosshair enter image description here

  2. Hold left mouse button and pull left, you'll see a new 3D Viewport, in this viewport click this icon

enter image description here

  1. Select "Outliner" enter image description here

  2. You can now repeat the process to open "Properties" panel, but now, instead of "Outliner", you should choose, well, "Properties" enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ Docs are good but sometimes you can't find the answer there since there are a lot of text and sections $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Everything there is quite useful, so no harm to read it. In this case I mean just for communication. It is Outliner and Properties editor, not "properties panel", panels are sort of regions in it. $\endgroup$ Jan 29, 2023 at 22:28
  • $\begingroup$ But it seems even official tutorials get it wrong... youtube.com/watch?v=8XyIYRW_2xk&t=61s this one linked before in the comments for example. He is talking about areas when he says 'panels'. That is not very helpful... $\endgroup$ Jan 29, 2023 at 22:47
