Two bonehead questions

I have two questions about something I knew how to do once but can’t remember:

Question 1: I used to have a problem with tool palettes occluding my view of measurements in the lower right corner of my screen. Somehow I managed to make the measurement dialog box show up at the top center of my screen. I was trying to explain this to someone but can’t remember how I did this.

Can anybody tell me what I did?

Question 2: I am able to toggle between parallel projection and perspective projection by just hitting the “W” key. Does this have something to do with hotkeys? How would I explain to someone how to set this up?

For the measurements question, right-click in the tools area at the top, and choose Customize Toolbar… Then drag the Measurements entry box to where you want it to appear.
