I've been using Bentley programs for years, but lately always Select editions.
I have had Descartes loaded onto my machine, but it is Connect edition.
I'm sorry, but it is like some kind of bad joke. I'm really struggling to find many of the things I've always used.
Please don't ask me to use the search function - it is no better than the help in Select editions.
I'm trying to find the workspace settings so that I can set it to use two screens.
But also I need to access resources that will allow me to learn how to make the move from Select to Connect.
So that's 2 things - setting up operation with two screens, and tutorials to learn how to use connect.
To have the application use 2 application windows go to File-->Settings-->User-->Preferences. See:
Regarding migrating to the CONNECT Edition the following may be of assistance:

Unfortunately search tools just doesn't work. Even when presented by Bentley most times it does not find anything because it does not find tools which are renamed in new version and it doesn't find tool by it name in dialog.
For example MS v8i tool "extend to intersection" is now "trim to intersection" so you will not find by search using extend.
Thank you. Do you know how I can add a description to a point cloud I have attached ?
Again, after 20 years using Bentley I am completely stumped by something which should be simple.
I am finding it next to impossible to learn any new features in Bentley Products.
Any idea how to use Descartes Section Manager ?
Sorry if I sound like I'm moaning, but it is frustrating to know there is so much functionality there but I just cannot access it
due to the difficulty in even getting started.
Any idea how I can have normal "select-style" toolboxes within "connect" ?
There is now V8i Task Theme available in U13 but not sure if it applies to Descartes.
