Desktops are a part of IDE configuration, they contain:

  • IDE windows states, positions, sizes
  • Window page settings in the environment options
  • Completion window size
  • IDE Coolbar settings
  • Editor Toolbar settings
  • Component palette settings

For example, you can make desktop which shows Source Editor, Object Inspector and Messages windows.

"Debug" desktop is used when you activate "Debug" build mode in project options. For example, debug desktop can show additionally the "Call Stack" window and hide Source Editor window.

Dialog "Desktops"

Dialog can be called from IDE's Tools menu. It allows to create/delete/rename desktops and choose any of them as debug desktop. You can also export/import desktops to/from XML files.

If you see "grayed" listbox items, then such desktops are incompatible with IDE's docked/undocked state.
