So we have watched some of the other videos about using Mini Bridge. There was one particular issue that I want to review and then show you how to resolve it. Let's open up the Mini Bridge panel, we can do this over here in the panel Dock or up here in the App Bar, by clicking the Mini Bridge icon. If I double-click on a file to open it inside Photoshop, you will see that that Mini Bridge panel stays open. And I can't just simply click somewhere outside of the panel to get it to close. I either need to click on this little double Chevron up here in upper right hand corner or click on the actual title of the panel, the Mini Bridge word here to get that to collapse.
So that's the default behavior. It turns out you can actually change the default behavior. And let's go ahead and do that. We can right-click on the darker gray strip above the panel dock, so either one of these is fine. We will go to right click here using the two button mouse. And choose Auto-Collapse iconic panels. Let's turn that on, make sure the checkmark is there, let's go back and take a look at it again, right-click. You can see it's turned now. So let's go open up a different file we will go ahead and close Fence.jpg this file here. Open up a different file. Just double-click on any one. It doesn't really matter. And now I can click anywhere outside the panel to make it go away.
So if you think you are going to be using Mini Bridge panel often, I tend to use it quite a bit. This is a nice little behavior to change. Against just right-click in the dark area and make sure Auto-Collapse iconic panels is turned on. It will make your Mini Bridge browsing experience just a little bit better.
