UI orientation

Breakroom's UI gives you the tools you need to thrive in your virtual world. Learn how to find your way around, manage your personal connections, and access various kinds of media.

Overview

Breakroom's UI, or user interface, contains the information and tools necessary to navigate your world. When enabled, your chosen UI components will frame the screen.
An example of the UI in action. You can press the F9 key or Alt + U (⌘ + U) to toggle the UI on and off.
There are situations where you may wish to enable or disable certain functions for your end users. If you disable a portion of the UI, end users will not see that component appear on their screens. You can learn more about UI customization via the Dashboard by visiting the Customization section.
