Can I Remove The Cover From The Right Pane?

Hello,
I'm using Calibre and I love it. However I am visually impaired so I had to make the font size much bigger. Doing this requires me to scroll down to read the book details. I'm using the cover viewer thing at the top so I don't really need to see the cover twice. Can I remove it from the pane on the right (details pane?)?
Thanks

Click the little black icon in the bottom right corner of the calibre interface to hide the cover browser.

I'm sorry, I didn't make myself clear. I want the cover browser, it is the cover on the right hand side I don't want. I don't want to have to scroll down to get to the book synopsis.

If you set the preferences: Look and Feel to Narrow
That pane moves to the bottom (and gets wider)
If you have 2 or more Displays , You can Detach the Cover Browser
Actually, you can do it even if you have a single Display, you just need to switch/Surface different windows)

Not exactly what I was wanting, but it works great. One more question, can I move the cover browser from the right to the left, with the list of books on the right. I know this sounds weird, but because I am visually impaired, I get free books in text and I have a whole lot of them to go through.

No, You are stuck with that location.
Left is reserved for the Tag Browser, no options.
The Cover and The Book browsers were the only panes with options.
Keeping track of 3 movable panes and making the works 'fail safe' would be a nightmare

LoL, ok Thanks for your help. Moving the summary to the bottom did help quite a bit. Thanks again

Actually, not being impaired ( well not ocularly) I find the windows magnifier much more useful, ie when I'm sat further away. Have you checked out the Full screen, Lens and Docked options of this tool, as well as the other settings - follow text or cursor etx

Thank you for the advice I have a program called zoom text which is sort of a souped up version of the windows magnifier.
