I downloaded GIMP and the only screen that I can get is the center screen where you work. I can't get the toolbox screen that's normally on the left side or the Layer, Channels screen that's normally on the right side to come up. I'm sure the fix is simple, but I can't figure it out. Can you help me?

To restore the closed windows, you simply need to go to the main window of the program, under Windows > Dockable Dialogs > and click on the missing ones from your workspace or press its keyboard shortcuts. For the Layer window, the key shortcut is F7. For more information, access the Help menu from the main window.
