Summary of this Tutorial:

You may want to change how your post editor screen looks like to you and we will show you how.

All meta boxes should have an arrow next to the title if you press this arrow it will either minimize or maximize it.

If you want to move a meta box around you click and hold onto the title then drag it to rearrange its position on the post edit screen. It can be placed either on the right hand column or at the bottom of the post editor.

Should you want a meta box completely hidden, click on the screen options button on the top right corner of the screen. A flydown menu should appear with check boxes to hide or display the meta boxes on the screen.

Finally, if you want a completely clear screen to write in you can either press the ‘Distraction Free Writing mode’ or press ALT+Shift+W on your keyboard.
