While working on a design, have you ever accidentally clicked on the SOLIDWORKS CommandManager and moved it out of position? This has happened to me on numerous occasions and it can be very frustrating. Thankfully, SOLIDWORKS 2016 and newer allows us to lock the SOLIDWORKS CommandManager in place. This blog explains how.
The CommandManager can still be moved by dragging on one of the tabs (Features, Sketch, etc.), instead of just being able to click on it and moving like in previous versions, but there is still the risk of moving the CommandManager accidentally.
To lock the SOLIDWORKS CommandManager in place, follow the steps below.
Your CommandManager is now locked and cannot be moved unless you redo the steps listed and deselect the option. This will also lock the current layout of your toolbars.
