  • Click on the top part (the part that turns blue when active) and hold and you can drag it out of the screen to make it a pop up or place it in a different section. Sep 16, 2020 at 16:10
  • Thanks @ShaneReilly i got my answer now how to bring that box back as you see in my new pic there is no decompiler box Sep 16, 2020 at 16:19
  • If you closed it, you can reopen it by clicking Window and then Decompiler. If it is off the screen and you want to drag it back, click and hold the bar at the top of the window, and drag it back in the main Ghidra screen. Sep 16, 2020 at 16:22

You can click on the top part of the desired window (which is blue in color when selected, and which has the title of the window written in it). You can then hold and drag it out of the screen.

At this point, it may appear weird that only this title bar is moving with your mouse, but try releasing the mouse button while this title bar is someone outside the ghidra screen, e.g., on another monitor even. You'll find that the window pops out and you can resize it, etc., as you please.

If on the other hand, you release it somewhere else within the ghidra screen, that repositions the window, possibly opening another tab to share the space with existing window(s) in that location.
