You probably know that when your cursor isn’t in text, you can press the Tab key to make InDesign’s panels disappear and reappear. But with your panels hidden, you can also simply bring your cursor to the right or left edge of your Workspace and the panels will pop into view.
By the way, if you don’t like this behavior, and would rather the panels stay hidden until you press Tab again, go to Preferences (Command+K/Ctrl+K) and in the Interface section, deselect the option to Auto-Show Hidden Panels.
