Enable the Terminal in Rstudio

To work on the HPC in Rstudio, you will first need to enable the terminal, as described below.

Step 1: Starting up Rstudio

Open Rstudio (Double click the icon).

This should now load Rstudio, and should look something like this. The style and layout can be different based on your preference, but it is not necessary (If this is of interest, you can explore Tools > Appearance or Tools > Pane Layout).

Step 2: Enabling the Terminal tab

Enable the Terminal viewer by clicking in the top: Tools > Terminal > New Terminal.

You should now see an additional tab named "Terminal" next to the original R console.

Go to section 2: Steps to change keyboard shortcuts (Recommended for Mac users).

Go to section 3: Logging into the HPC and setting up your environment.
