Moodle has a feature called "docking the blocks" that allows users to move one of the blocks (Navigation, Administration, etc.) so that the block appears as a tab at the top-left of the screen. Putting your mouse over that tab displays the full contents of the block, saving screen space on the right-hand side of the page. The primary problem with that feature, however, is that most people accidentally dock one of their blocks, and then they can no longer find the functionality contained within the block. Here is how you restore a block that you have intentionally or unintentionally docked to the left-hand side of the page:

  1. If you put your mouse over the docked block, you will see the full contents of the block:

    Mouse Over Docked Block

  2. While the block is expanded, click on the "undock block" icon in the top-right corner of the block:

    Undock Block

  3. The block will now return to the right-hand side of the page, in its typical place.
