You can open the Manual Playback dialog box by either doing Test > Execute Manual or by playing the whole test via Test > Play.

Minimized Playback Dialog

Sometimes you want to be able to reduce the amount of space taken up by the testing dialog box so that you can view the application and the test steps on the same screen at the same time. To make this easier, if you click on the Minimize ( <| ) icon in the top-right of the dialog box it will change the manual playback dialog to the mini version show above. You can click on the icon again to switch back to the standard player.
