Understand the Microsoft Advertising Editor user interface

This topic describes the main parts of the Microsoft Advertising Editor user interface.

We’ve updated Microsoft Advertising Editor's visual experience to help you stay organized and on top of your accounts. Aside from looks, we updated the names of some sections on our interface. Be sure to reacquaint yourself with their placement and descriptions below:
