Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Displaying UI elements, part of Maya: Workflow Tips.
…The user interface in Maya is pretty fluid, and…we can actually drag and drop the various elements around.…And we can show and hide them at will.…So for example, I could select this, which is called the shelf.…That little textured bar over here, and I could select it and move it.…And let's say I wanted it to be at the bottom, here.…I could position it. And then release the mouse.…And now I place the shelf at the bottom. Or I could move it back up again.…One thing that I do all the time in fact…is tear the Attribute Editor and the Tool Setting windows off.…
So that I can move them around and maybe position them on a second monitor.…So the Attribute Editor is here. I can also hit Ctrl+A to open it.…And I basically always drag that off and I can resize it, get a…little bit more real estate or I can move it on to a second monitor.…Same thing with the Tool settings.…If you double-click on, for example, the Move tool,…you'll get the tool settings and that just takes up…space for the view port, so I tear that off too.…
