How to Close the Playground Window
Selecting “Close” will close the Playground window and stop the current project from running.
How to Hide/Show the Playground Window
Select the “Hide” button to collapse the Playground window. This will still keep the gold toolbar at the top of the Playground window visible.
To view the full Playground again, select the “Show” button.

The Playground window begins at a smaller size by default. If you want to expand the Playground window, select the “Expand” button at the top left corner.
To shrink the Playground window back to the original size, select the “Shrink” button on the top left corner.
