To reset the current perspective to its original layout, from the menu bar select
<strong>Window &gt; Reset Perspective</strong>.</li>
<li>You are familiar with the basic Workbench features, such as 
<a href="../concepts/cdt_c_views.htm">views</a> and 
<a href="../concepts/cdt_c_perspectives.htm">perspectives</a>.
</li>
</ul>
