Workspace Browser

Open Workspace browser to manage workspace


The Workspace browser enables you to view and interactively manage the contents of the workspace in MATLAB®. For each variable or object in the workspace, the Workspace browser also can display statistics, when relevant, such as the minimum, maximum, and mean.

You can edit the contents of scalar (1-by-1) variables directly in the Workspace browser. Right-click the variable and select Edit Value. To edit other variables, double-click the variable name in the Workspace browser to open it in the Variables editor.
