When I "launch workspace", it always opens in a new window.

So I just place the windows side-by-side and work along with the video.

Having two displays is a big help, or one of the extra-wide aspect monitors. You could still do it otherwise, but you might have to settle for narrow columns or fewer rows.

Thank you. I appreciate your help.

Hi Ben Smith

When I'm on my laptop, I typically open up two instances of my browser: one for the video and one for my workspace/text editor and I split the screen real estate between the two.

When I'm on my desktop, I keep my text editor on one monitor and the video on the other — my preferred way of studying/coding.

Thank you.

It helps to purchase a second monitor and connect. They are relatively cheap. I like to listen to the lesson first and take notes then follow with workplace.
