Others are available for download. Depending on the selected device, some core and library versions are interchangeable. See Versions Area section for more details.

Note: All operating areas are dockable. Each can be dragged and dropped into another position, even out of the MPLAB X IDE main window (closing the IDE, however, will close all MCC windows, including those moved outside the IDE).
