When executed in a graphical windowing environment such as the X Window System or Microsoft Windows, SXEmacs displays several graphical user interface components such as scrollbars, menubars, toolbars, and gutters. By default there is a vertical scrollbar at the right of each frame, and at the top of the frame there is a menubar, a toolbar, and a gutter, in that order. Gutters can contain any of several widgets, but the default configuration puts a set of "notebook tabs" which you can use as a shortcut for selecting any of several related buffers in a given frame. Operating the GUI components is "obvious": click on the menubar to pull down a menu, on a button in the toolbar to invoke a function, and on a tab in the gutter to switch buffers.
