Cannot dock "Book Browser" window [SOLVED]

Sorry for this simple problem, but I'm just now starting to explore - and want to learn - to use Sigil.

The 'Book Browser" window will not anchor anywhere. When I move it around, it does not relocate/resize the main window. There's no problem with the 'Table of Contents,' and 'Clips.'

Also, the 'Book Browser' window has only the 'X' - to open or close the window.

I must have clicked on something to cause this problem, but for the life of me, I can't figure out how to get it back to anchor on the left side - or to anchor anywhere for that matter.

I'm using 0.7.0 version.

My apologies for such a simple question.

I've seen other people mention being unable to get it to re-dock (on certain versions of Windows, I believe), as well, so it may not be as simple as it sounds.

If double-clicking the title bar of the Book Browser fails to re-dock it, I've heard of others having to resort to deleting the sigil.ini file to fix it. Just make sure there's no keyboard shortcuts or other customizations you can't bear to lose before deleting.

Deleting the Sigil.ini file is the way to recover. Once you have things as you like, make a backup (Copy of...) for a quick restore.

BTW 7.2 is the latest unless you have reasons

To get the new version, should I simply delete all of 0.7.0 ?

I uninstalled 0.7.0 and then downloaded 0.7.2 and I have the exact same problem.

The 'Book Browser' window only has an 'X' in it and moving it around does not anchor it anywhere.

ADDED: I double-clicked and it WORKED. (Double-clicking the one in 0.7.0 did not work.)

Thank you, everyone, for the help. I appreciate it!
