Another piece of interface chrome to talk about and point out right away is something called the Application Bar. That's this horizontal strip at the very top of the window. It's just an icon bar basically for housing some pretty common things. You might want access to often. That's also where you have your workspace switchers. We'll talk about that later. Right now, we are at the Essentials workspace. Over here, on the left, are the browsing Bridge button, the Mini Bridge button. Some options for changing the current Rulers and Grids and Guides, instead of having to remember what menu those are under, they just put a convenient button here in the App bar.
So, if I want to show my Rulers, I don't need another keyboard for that. I can just go up to that little icon there and it's a pop-down menu there. Some common view percentages, if I want to jump to 100%, I have a quick way to do that. If I want to jump to 200% or get back to 50% and so forth. When you are working with multiple documents open, we only have one open, right now. But when you have multiple documents open, you have a way to arrange the documents on the screens. So, you can tile them horizontally, vertically and so forth. Then you have got some Screen mode options as well, the default is Standard Screen mode. If I put this to Full Screen Mode With Menu Bar, that puts the image behind the panels and maximizes your screen real estate there.
Then you just pan around with the Hand tool instead of using your scroll bars if there is parts of the image that you can't see. We'll take that back to the Standard Screen mode to get it back to the default.
