Desktop Tools

The following tools are managed by the MATLAB desktop, although not all of them appear by default when you first start. If you prefer a command-line interface, you can use equivalent functions to perform most of the features found in the MATLAB desktop tools. You need to use these equivalent functions to perform the operations in M-files. Instructions for using these function equivalents are provided with the documentation for each tool.

Other MATLAB tools and windows, such as figure windows, are not managed by the desktop.
