== Layout: Panes & Toolbars ==
The Memento desktop edition window is subdivided into 3 primary [[Glossary#pane|panes]], primarily for libraries (on the left), for entries (in the center), and for field properties & values (on the right). On occasion, such as the opening window, when starting the app, the contents of a pane will be subdivided into '''''sections'''''. Pane sections are distinguished from toolbars in that:

The Memento desktop edition window is typically subdivided into 3 primary [[Glossary#pane|panes]], primarily for libraries (on the left), for entries (in the center), and for field properties & values (on the right). On occasion, such as the opening window, when starting the app, the contents of a pane will be subdivided into sections of introductory text.
* Only the '''content''' is sectioned, whereas, with a toolbar, it is the pane itself, that is broken up.

* While toolbars are separated by border lines, pane sections are separated by white space.

=== The Opening window ===
When Memento opens, below the canonical Windows Title bar and Menu bar, there are 2 panes -- a narrower one on the left and a wider one to the right. Read below about the Libraries pane for the left pane. It doesn't change in format from opening until closing of the app. It will remain after activity begins, while the one on the right is displayed for the opening only.

When Memento opens, below the canonical Windows Title bar and Menu bar, there are 2 panes -- a narrower one on the left and a wider one to the right containing 3 sections of text & links that form the home page of Memento, if you will. Read below about the left pane listing the Libraries  Groups.

The opening right pane has the title "Welcome to the Memento Database Desktop". The pane is made up of 3 sections: New Library, Recent, and Help.

The opening windows is an exception in that -- instead of a center pane and a right pane -- a large right pane acts as a home page of sorts, with the title "Welcome to the Memento Database Desktop". The right pane is made up of 3 sections separated by white space: New Library, Recent, and Help.
 
;The New Library section: offers a link to to create a new library.
 
;The New Library section: offers a link to to create a new library.
 
;The Recent section: is a list of the 5 most-recently accessed libraries listed from most recent to least recent. Each recently-accessed library is accompanied by 2 hyperlinks: Open to open the library and Add an entry to add a new entry to the library.

The Memento [[Glossary#Window|window]] is populated in various ways, depending upon what is happening in the window. There are always a Windows title bar and a Windows main menu toolbar, and they always have the same format. Beyond that, windows are populated with tiled panes. Panes are often broken down into tiled toolbars. A pane's content may be presented in sections, each with a title, text, and hyperlinks.

When a library has been selected, its entries are displayed in the center pane. Once an entry has been selected, its fields & their values are displayed in the right pane. Memento opens, below the canonical Windows Title bar and Menu bar, there are 2 panes -- a narrower one on the left and a wider one to the right. Read below about the Libraries pane for the left pane.
