This 'mode' for the Paltalk interface is a 'single window' environment, so everything stays in place and is easily accessible. The window has several sections. These areas are used to control what you do while logged in. There are also 'alternative' screen layout modes', which will break the interface apart into separate windows, or use a more 'compact' way of displaying things, or both.
This is the 'single window' view, showing your Pals on the left, the global group listing on the right, navigation in the header, and your personal information on the top left.

When in a chat room
When you are in a group you will still see your Pals on the left, but the header and right side of the window change. Now the header will show information about the group, the group's text chat in the center, and video viewer panels and participants on the right.
When in a group you can type, talk, listen in, and share your video camera. You can also start private messages by right clicking on any name in the list.
