This documentation section explains the different items displayed by GCstar.
Here is GCstar main window (of course, there won’t be so much information the first time it is launched).
On the left side, there is the collection content. Clicking on an item will display its information on the right side. Double-clicking on it will open a window also containing its information.
The right side of the window may differ depending on the current collection. It also depends on some user settings. The previous example was for the tab display of a movie collection.
In any case, this will contain all the information attached to a collection item.
On top of the window, there is a toolbar. It can be used for quicker access to current features.
From left to right, the buttons are used for:
- Add a new movie
- Save current collection
- Change preferences
- Find movies
- Display all movies
- Show a random movie
- Launch associated file
- Change field used to group items
Other sections in this documentation contain more information about these actions.

It is possible to configure which fields are displayed on the right side of the window. This is achieved using Displayed Information in Settings menu. It opens this window:
All fields that could be displayed are grouped by tabs. If the associated check box is checked, the corresponding field will be shown. It will be hidden if it is not checked.
This only changes what information is displayed. Information that is not displayed is still stored in the collection.
