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.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:["RStudioGD"]) # Apply & dev.list()

After executing this R code, all plots should be removed from RStudio.
