All Tabs and Docks Closed in Congo or Cobalt

It is possible to close all of the tabs and all of the dock on a Congo/Cobalt console, leaving you with something like this:

The Live and Main Playback tabs are normally locked from closing so one would need to manually unlock them for this to happen. If you do this, in some cases the facepanel buttons may no longer open their corresponding tabs, and obviously you can't quit because Exit is in the browser!

To Reset the screens back to Default Layout:
(Browser & Effects docks, locked Main Playback & Live tabs)
Hold [C/Alt] and press [Tab] twice in quick succession: ([C/Alt]+[Tab][Tab])

In version 6.3.x and later, to open the Browser again:

  1. Right-click near the middle of the left-hand edge of the screen to open the Docks Context Menu:
  2. Choose "Browser" to open the Browser dock.
    1. once the Browser dock is open again, you can use Save/Load/Exit, etc.
    2. All the facepanel shortcuts to open tabs will now work.
