  • The Recent Workspaces tab used to open collected workspaces.

  • The Profiling tab used to control a profiling session.

The Recent Workspaces tab is used to open previously collected workspaces. The tab contains a table with four columns each showing the corresponding workspace parameter: Last Opened, Name, Created, and Size.
