Once I have some simulators installed, the "extra components" screen is unreachable
So if I want to add more simulators, how would I do that? Suggestion: keep that option always visible maybe?

There's actually a way to do that (install more simulators). I let you search. I'm interested to understand why it's not obvious.
Oh we're playing games, eh? :-P So I did search before: 1) googled it - it brought me to this Web IDE page https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/WebIDE which doesn't tell/warn you that the option will disappear or how to add more simulators afterwards. 2) I looked at the menus in the Web IDE and I see: - Project - Runtime - View Since I want to add a new runtime, I click on "Runtime" and I get - Screenshot - Permissions table - Runtime info - Disconnect This looks particular to this very runtime (evidenced by the fact that if there is no connected runtime, the options are greyed out). So out of desperation I click on "Runtime info" and obviously find nothing that tells me how to add more runtimes. 3) Now that you told me to search more I clicked on the other non evident options and I found TWO ways of managing simulators - none of which make sense to me where they are: - Project - Preferences - Manage simulators (why would I want to manage simulators which is a global thing under preferences for a single project?) - View - Manage simulators (why is this here? what does it show me to "View"?) My reasoning is that you don't want to surprise users. I am probably not going to remember that there are two ways of installing simulators because they're in non-obvious places, but I do remember that I installed the first simulators using an option that was where the rest of installed simulators are, so I expect to find that option there so I can add / manage them in the future. Don't take my options away! :D
that is exactly what I expected to find :)
