  3. Click and drag the Sidebar to change the width.

  2. The Sidebar will collapse.

To Expand the Sidebar
  1. In the Collapsed view, click the right-pointing arrow at the top of the Sidebar.

Toggling The Sidebar On/Off

In Ghost Browser 2.0 we've designed a more productive way for you to manage your tabs with a Sidebar. It takes the tab, Session and Project management features of the previous versions' Ghost Menu to a whole new level.

If you're having trouble getting used to the Sidebar, we've provided you with a way to switch between the Ghost Menu and the Ghost Browser 2.0 Sidebar. This setting won't always be there, so we highly encourage you to play with the Sidebar and explore the many productivity-boosting features it provides.

To toggle between the Ghost Menu and the Sidebar

  1. Click the Ghost Menu to the left of the address bar.
  2. Check or un-check Show Sidebar.

This will toggle new Sidebar open and closed. If you un-check the Show sidebar setting you can use the Ghost Menu to manage Sessions and Workspaces.
