We will click on Start Drawing option and then a menu will appear and it is known as Basic Screen of our AutoCAD.

Step:5 On the top left corner we can see Application menu bar, where we can click and start new drawing, open our existing drawings, save our drawing, also save as, then we can publish it, print it, and atlast if we want to go out of AutoCAD than we have Close option also. So this is what application menubar is.

Step:6 Beside Application Menu Bar we have Quick Access Toolbar, where we have same functionality like New, Open, Save, Save as, Plot, and also Undo and Redo.

Step:7 Inside our home tab we have different Draw panels, Modify options and Annotation panel, Layers panel, Properties etc... When we click on drop panel we can see one Panel Expanded Icon.

In below all panels we have our View controls which provides access to standard and custom views and 3D projections. We can also change the view from visual style controls, such as 2D wireframe, conceptual, hidden, realistic, shaded, shaded with edges, and many more.

On the right side of our screen we have our View cube, from where we can go to our right, left, top, bottom side of our drawing.

Below that we have our navigation toolbar, from where we can have many options like Pan, Zoom extends, Orbit and others.

In the bottom middle we have our command line which will show the command we are going write.
