Ohno! You’ve accidentally pulled the tool box off the sidebar. Grabbing it and putting it back does not seem to work. What is going on here?

First of all the X means that you want to close the dock, and secondly the Arrow in the square means to Iconify the box even smaller on the side panel. Finally on this same line is where we grab the panel.
