How do I return the Android Studio to its default project window settings?

I am new to Android development and the Android development software

I really liked the original default SDK project view and window positions but somehow I got everything messed up so all the windows are in the wrong place and I can seem to get the default (original) project view back.

For example, I no longer can see the screen view in the editor.

Is there some way simply to return to the original default window sizes and positions.

My current Android studio view

Use
Window->Restore Default Layout

If the menu bar is missing try Shift+F12

I tried your first suggestion...the only thing that happened was the main window maximized.

I never knowing set a new default view. I seem to recall with Ellipse I could simply delete a particular file and Elipse would return to the default view and re-create the file.

Here is what I see after your suggestions.  Thanks.

Any other ideas? I don't see the graphic view any longer.

If you are talking about layout files, there should be a design button next to the text button at the bottom of the editor screen. This will switch you between text and visual layout mode.

There is no design button showing and I don't see any window or target called "Design view" or something similar

That is your manifest file, not a layout. It does not have a design view. What do you see when you open a layout file?

Like I said, I am a beginner with the IDE> By 3 months the answers will be obvious.

  It worked. Thanks
