The Options bar is docked at the top of the screen by default, but as with the toolbox and floating palettes, it can be moved wherever you need it to be. (To move the Options bar, click and hold the far-left edge and drag it to its new location.)
When you choose a particular tool from the toolbox, its options appear in this Options bar. For example, when you choose the Brush tool from the toolbox, the Options bar changes to display choices for brush tips, painting mode, opacity, and so on.
