Using the Application Navigator

The Application Navigator presents you with a hierarchical view of all the elements in your application. At the top of the Application Navigator is a drop-down list of open applications that also enables you to open an application or create a new one. To the right of the drop-down list is an arrow that displays the application menu, enabling you to choose actions pertaining to the current application.

The Application Navigator contains four panels:
