User Interface Layouts

Tabs Layout

Tree List Layout

System Explorer provides two types of layouts. If you don't like default "tabs layout", you can switch it to "tree list layout". Just click to menu>View>Show Left Menu. Our recommendation is to use "tabs layout", because you can remove unneeded tabs and save system resources.
