    Two of them can be shown or hidden: Disk List and Descriptions.

  • Catalog - displays the tree-like catalog of files and folders. The tab has three additional panes that can be shown or hidden. These panes are: Disk Browser, Search Results, and Descriptions. Note that only one of these panes can be displayed at a time.
