When you launch LabVIEW, the Getting Started window appears that includes introductory material and common commands.

LabVIEW Getting Started Window

You can use this window to create new VIs, select among the most recently opened LabVIEW files, find examples, and launch the LabVIEW Help. You also can access information and resources to help you learn about LabVIEW, such as specific manuals, help topics, and resources on the National Instruments Web site.

The Getting Started window disappears when you open an existing file or create a new file. The Getting Started window reappears when you close all open front panels and block diagrams. You also can display the window from the front panel or block diagram by selecting View»Getting Started Window.
