Floating (Cascaded) Figures in Desktop Example

You can show multiple figures at once in the desktop. By default, figures open outside the desktop. Click the Dock button in each figure's menu bar to move the figures into the desktop.

You can float (also called cascade) the figures by selecting Window -> Float, or clicking the Float button Image of MATLAB desktop showing Workspace browser and Command Window in it, along with two figure windows. The figure windows float, that is, you arrange them within the Figure window area, without any other guides from the desktop.. On the Macintosh platform, you cannot dock figures. To get even more screen area for the figures, hide the document bar as shown in this example--select Desktop -> Document Bar -> Hide.
