When you accidentally close a toolbox window in GIMP, or it just seems to disappear on you, don't despair, because there are easy ways to get the toolbox back, and to ensure it doesn't go wandering off again.
If You Closed It Accidentally
Press "Ctrl-B," or click "Windows" on the menu bar and then click "Toolbox" from the drop-down menu.
If the Toolbox Doesn't Appear When You Open GIMP
Click "Edit" on the menu bar and then click "Preferences" from the drop-down menu. Click "Window Preferences" in the new Preferences window that appears. Under Window Positions, click the "Reset Saved Window Positions to Default Values" button, then click "OK." Close GIMP and reopen it. Your toolbox reappears.
If you lose your toolbox frequently, set GIMP to reset the toolbox position every time you close the program. Go back to the Window Preferences window and remove the check from the check box labeled "Save window positions on exit."
