Thanks for the report. Maybe this bug is the same as reported (and fixed) in bug #63230. Could you please try a recent nightly windows (mxe) build from this download page: https://buildbot.octave.space/#/download ?

I just downloaded and installed Octave on my computer. I have a Dell Precision 5530 laptop, and I run Windows 11 Pro.

When I open Octave and begin reorganizing the windows, it just crashes on me. For example, when I move the Workspace over to the very right side, Octave crashes. When I move the Command History window down to be below the Command Window, Octave crashes. In both of these instances, when I reopen Octave afterward, the changes are not saved (the windows are back in their original positions).

However, there are some instances where it dos not crash, like if I move the Command History window to merge with the Workspace window on the left half of the screen (where they are originally located), they work fine, and Octave does not crash. After this, if I close and reopen Octave, the windows remain where I moved them.

So overall, it looks like Octave is okay with certain window movements and merges but not with others.

I have tried restarting my computer and checking for updates through Support Assist. Nothing has fixed the issue so far, so it may be a bug.
