 By default at the bottom left, this is the most important pane– the Console! This is where you enter your R code to do everything in the curriculum. The rest of the document will be largely concerned with working in the Console, with occasional references to other panes. By default at the bottom left, this is the most important pane– the Console!

 +===== Other Tips & Tricks =====
 +
 +==== Full-Screen/​Presentation Mode ====
 +
 +* It's possible, in many browsers such as Google Chrome, to fit the RStudio Server window to the entire screen.
 +  * These options are usually listen under the **View** options for the //Browser// (NOT the **View** options inside the RStudio Window).
 +  * Look for options to make your screen //Full size// or an option to //Enter Presentation Mode//.
 +  * Browsers are all different. Consult the documentation for the browser you're using for documentation of making the browser window full-screen.
 +
 +==== Pane Arrangement & Sizing ====
 +
 +You'll sometimes find it convenient to re-arrange the 4 window panes. To do so, move your mouse to the top of the screen and click on **Tools** and then **Build Options...**
 +

 +
 +When the **Options** menu window opens, click on **Pane Layout**, on the left-hand side and then re-arrange the panes to your liking.

 +
 +==== Some possible configurations ====
 +* For instructors,​ it's sometimes helpful to move the //Console// pane to the upper-left corner and the //plot window// to the upper-right.
 +  * This configuration allows your students to watch you write your plot functions as well as clearly see the resulting plots.
 +* For users with smaller screens, smartly arranging the panes can help you better use the screen real-estate that you do have.
 +  * Place your console and script on the left-hand side of your screen and the help and plot windows on the right.
 +  * You can write your code then on the left and analyze the plots on the right.
 +  * If you're viewing the IDS lab slides on a small screen, you might find it helpful to place the //Viewer// in the lower-right hand corner, the //Console// in the upper-right hand corner and the //Script// you're writing on the left. Adjusting the size of the panes to make the slides larger will also help in reading them.
