 +===== The main window =====
 +<note important>​This page contains images that need updating to match the latest version of gschem.</​note>​
 +When **gschem** is started, the main window is shown.
 +{{geda:​gschem_screenshot_001.jpg|Screenshot of gschem main window}}
 +The window has four main elements. ​ Working from top to bottom, these are:
 +  - The menu bar, where all built-in file and editing actions are available.
 +  - The toolbar, which gives quick access to the most commonly needed actions.
 +  - The schematic view area.
 +  - The status bar. Working from left to right, the status bar shows: the current bindings for the left, middle and right mouse buttons; the grid settings; the current keystroke sequence (this will be initially blank); and the current editing mode.
