Android Build a Simple Android App (2014) Creating the Screen Layout Getting to Know Our Tools

No 4:Run tab

When you were showing tabs at the bottom of Android Studio where we see options like 6:Android, Terminal, TODO, Messages, etc etc etc I don't have a 4:Run tab

How can I open that option up again so it's on the bottom/bottom left of my screen again?

I have an app emulation open, so no problem there.

You mentioned you can hit 4:Run tab to see if there are any problems going on, to test the app, but right now I don't have that tab

Run your app in a emulator then look again in the bottom

It may be show

the editor had in preview "Automatically Pick Best" had set my my preview app to API 23: Android 6.0 instead of Android 4.2.2,which was setting a whole other list of problems. Once I set it correctly to 4.2.2. everything seemed to fall into place, and yep, ran the app in the emulator and 4:Run popped right up.

MANY THANKS
