How to work with Layer Palette
To work with Layer Palette
The Layer palette contains the controls used when working with layers and provides quick access to many of the commands and options in the Layers menu and Layer Properties dialog box. Unlike the Layers menu and Layer Properties dialog box, the palette allows you to change the options for all the layers in an image simultaneously.
To toggle between viewing and hiding the Layer palette, do any of the following:
Click the Layer palette button on the toolbar,
Right-click the empty space of a palette or bar and choose it from the menu, or
Choose the View tab from the menu bar and then in the toolbars, select or clear its checkbox in the Toolbars dialog box.
