A good layout can help you to work smoothly.

When open Unity first time, it shows the default layout. Nothing wrong with the default but if you want to work more efficiently, you can change your layout as mine.

Unity has a free-to-adjust editor which you can move almost everything as you wish.

First, change the layout to Tall.

Then drag the Game down to the bottom of Scene and adjust the size same as Scene.

Now we can examine our scene and game view easily at the same time.

Our Project window now has 2 column with it, which is not such convenient if we add more objects in the future. It will become more and more difficult to lookup for objects.

We can simply change it to 1 column.
Click the drop down menu on the top right of Project window, and click One Column Layout.

Now we have an easy-to-use and professional layout.
