Let’s get started…
Creation of Example Plots
As a first step, we can create some plots in RStudio:
plot(1:10) # Plot No. 1 plot(10:1) # Plot No. 2 plot(1) # Plot No. 3
Have a look at your RStudio plots window.
It should show the last graphic that we have created above (i.e. plot(1)) and you should be able to switch back to the other two graphs in the plots window.
Example: Remove All Plots from RStudio Using dev.off() & dev.list() Functions
This example explains how to clear all plots from the RStudio plots window using R programming code.
Have a look at the following R syntax:
dev.off(dev.list()["RStudioGD"]) # Apply dev.off() & dev.list()
After executing this R code, all plots should be removed from RStudio.
