This small window which will enable you to do various thing. If the brick is disconnected to the computer, this word EV3 will revert to black color.

Below that red word EV3 are 3 buttons
1st button: download program from computer to EV3 brick
2nd button: download program from computer and execute
3rd button: download programs

IMPORTANT: Avoid using 2nd and 3rd button. Reason, robot may start moving and drag laptop computer off the table

Next to the above column is the brick information window with more buttons/tools where you can get information on:
1. battery level
2. brick name (can change name from default EV3 to, say, your/student name)
