What is the Default view of the right-hand side?

What you do mean with that?

This looks like the default settings when IMatch comes up on a new computer.

When you first install iMatch and the user has made no changes what do you have the right side panels open? I think up in the very top right corner it showed some information about your database. What did you have open below that?

The The Info & Activity Panel shows information about your database and IMatch background activity.

Ok, what I'm talking about is how iMatch looks on the right side has open and looks like when iMatch is first installed without me changing anything.

I do have another question. Should I start another post or just add it to this one?

Thanks.

Why do you need to know which panels are open for a fresh installation?
What I see in your screen shot looks pretty much like the default workspace after a fresh install.

One question per thread is usually better.

I'm rebuilding my system and I want everything to be as close to a fresh install. When you look at these images you can see how the middle window goes under the left-hand pane. So how can I fix all of this? When I look at a picture of a new install in the help system mine is a lot different.

Carl for starters click that pin indicated in the modified version of your first screen shot that I have attached to this.  Clicking the pin will lock that panel to the left side of your workspace.  You may need to do the same thing for Categories, Collections and the Timeline.

You can do the same thing on the right side to lock in place the panels you want there.

That's how you customize your workspace to set it up the way you want it.

Drag a panel to where you want it then if you want it locked in place click that pin.  If you want it to slide in and out with your mouse leave the pin the way it is in your screen shot.

Agreed.

I also recommend reading the Panels help topic and watching the Using IMatch Panels and Workspaces in the IMatch Learning Center.
