Vim has a lot of features and options. Some of the more advanced features can be productivity game changers, such as using sessions, split windows, tabs, and the difference mode.

In this longer, but feature-filled, hands-on lab, you'll work with saving and loading Sessions to help with switching gears and projects. Then you'll be using tabs to visually manage your editing, and then utilizing split windows to make it easier to see more buffers at once and help you be more productive!

Finally, you'll get some practice comparing and merging file contents, and setting some useful options in the Vim resource configuration file.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
