If you prefer to work in a GUI, you can launch the Vivado IDE from Windows or Linux. For more information on the Vivado IDE, see the Vivado Design Suite User Guide: Using the Vivado IDE (UG893) and Vivado Design Suite User Guide: Design Flows Overview (UG892).
Recommended: Launch the Vivado IDE from the directory containing your project, or your working directory. This makes it easier to locate the project file, log files, and journal files, which are written to the launch directory.
Tip: For quick access to information on different parts of the Vivado IDE, click the Quick Help button in the window or dialog box.
