I'm running Internet Explorer 11.0.9600.18978 on Windows 8. At some point I opened the developer tools using F12 and undocked/unpinned the tools, so that it became a separte window.

When I now try to dock/pin it again, the pin button is clickable but does not do anything.

The shortcut Ctrl + P also does not work.

Drag and Drop also does not work: The window does not snap-in/dock

I already read Navigating the F12 Developer Tools Interface and also followed the steps described in the support article The menu bar and the toolbar are missing in Internet Explorer on Windows Vista or Windows XP or in Windows Explorer on Windows XP (yes, I have seen that is not for Windows 8 but I nevertheless gave it a try).

Any ideas how to dock/pin the tools again?

  • Have you tried drag and drop (to the appropriate location) on your undocked window? – DavidPostill May 16 '18 at 12:49
  • Yes, but I does not snap in/dock at the main window. – Yeti May 16 '18 at 12:58
  • Cannot repro. The pin button for me docks it again (on Windows 7) – DavidPostill May 16 '18 at 13:19
