Step 2. Collapse the sidebar

Collapse the sidebar by selecting the collapse/expand button (pictured). A keyboard shortcut isn't currently available.

Your media library sidebar can be collapsed/expanded using the arrow.

A collapsed sidebar should look like this.

Step 3. Collapse the timeline

Collapse the timeline by selecting the collapse/expand button (pictured), or use the keyboard shortcut command + option + 3.

Step 5. Return Clipchamp to its regular display

To return your screen to its previous view, simply select the same buttons you used to collapse the timeline and sidebar. Clicking them will expand the timeline and sidebar to their previous size.
