The player is the frame around your course. By default in Articulate Storyline 2, it'll include a left sidebar menu and slide content area, but you’re not limited to the default look. In fact, you can customize the player in a bunch of ways with just a few clicks. 

In this tutorial, you'll see just how easy it is to customize the course player. Watch this video first, then follow the steps below to practice.
