Not sure what happened, but now I am only able to have one tool window enabled at a time.
E.g if I want to see the project, i click view > tool window > project
Then to open commit, I have to cick view > tool window > commit
And that will remove project
Before this happened, I was able to have them displayed as tabs on the left hand side
I have cleared system cache, restarted intellij and my machine, same thing happens
on an M1 mac
