It's a bit of a workaround, but as overlays are per viewport, you can split the view and disable the header and overlays on the right like so:
Then drag the left viewport over till the T menu is positioned correctly.
Save this as your sculpting workspace, and you should be all set.
"Whack" em all.
Script will "whack" (unregister) any registered Panel, Menu or Header class that follows the naming convention.
classes_to_whack = (
for p in dir(bpy.types)
sep in p
for sep in ("_PT_", "_HT_", "_MT_")
This is the Tool Shelf, and has been replaced in the 2.80+ default interface by a more condensed Tool Shelf that uses gizmos, the various menus at the top of the 3D View, and the operations search engine. Check out The Blender Documentation page for advanced details, or comment below.
If you are opening an old blend file with a newer version of blender, try ...
Go to Edit > Preferences and under 'Display', check the 'Developer Extras' checkbox and close the dialog. If you now use F3 to search and type in 'flip' you'll see an option called 'screen.region_flip * Flip Region'.
Click that and your toolbar will magically appear on the right of the window!
It's a panels poll method
The panels are defined and sitting there polling away, waiting to "show".

Go to Wacom Tablet Properties
Optionally, set a specific application
Select the dropdown menu for the button you plan on changing
In the design of Blender, if an object is hidden, it cannot be selected.
Also, if it is not selectable, you can't access its properties.
So when you disable selectability or viewport visibility for all selected objects, it automatically excludes all objects from selection.
Somehow the "active" selected object (yellow dot in the viewport) is still ...
I've found how to do this for the Render and File Browser (applies to the save dialogue) windows: Edit > Preferences > Interface > Editors > Temporary Windows.
However, this does not prevent the preferences window itself from opening up as a new window, so this doesn't fully answer the question.
Here I am 5 years later with the same question. IM currelntly using Blender 2.91 and eventhough I looked I wasnt able to find the option. BUT If you go into preferences and click on THEME, instead of searching for the specific place where the SELECTION color is (if there is any), just change the Theme entirely. I took "MAYA theme" and it works ...
No, you can't. But take a look on this add-on:
It can reorder tabs and group several tabs into one. So you can save a lot of space putting several add-ons (that you don't often use) into one tab, or group add-ons by functionality.
The box is called Adjust Last Operation. If you do anything in 3D viewport like add/remove/etc it should be shown by default on bottom-left corner in 3D Viewport. If not, just simply turn-on when you are on Object Mode, go to View > Adjust Last Operation.
