The Standard Toolbar above is, by default, docked across the top of the PSP workspace. It can be made into a floating palette by clicking on a space in between the icons and dragging away from the top. Once undocked (floating), you can resize into a box. More on resizing floating palettes is on the effects toolbar page. To dock the toolbar on either side or top or bottom of the workspace, drag it to the edge you wnat it on and let go.

Whether it is docked or floating, you can make it appear and disappear by tapping the T key. Try it!

The Standard Toolbar icons are grouped in sections:
