For those that use the Command Manager, you finally have the ability to move it! I have used it since its inception, and always found it useful.

When you click on the command manager back round, you will see these three arrow buttons pop up:
Drop the command manager on one of the arrows, and it will be placed on that screen edge.
Do you use dual monitors? Here is a bonus hint, drag the command manager to your second monitor! It will also snap to any of the four edges! However, it will stay in the vertical orientation as shown below:
