To open and start Enscape you have to access it via the User Interface (UI) of the CAD you’ve installed Enscape for.
The following images show the Enscape Toolbar in both the Revit and SketchUp User Interfaces, respectively.
You will find that the Enscape toolbar has also been adapted in style to confirm to the UI’s of the other supported CAD’s and therefore being almost identical as those shown here.
Along with the buttons to launch Enscape, enable its Live Update and Synchronize Views functions, this CAD-side toolbar also provides a way to access core Enscape functions and options without having to start Enscape, such as the License Key activation, Performance options, Language, and Network settings, as well as access to a form to contact Enscape Support if you run into any problems.

Whichever CAD you are running Enscape in, press the Enscape Start button in the Enscape toolbar to open the Enscape viewport.
When Enscape opens for the first time, you should see a row of buttons running across the top of the Enscape Viewport.
If you don’t, click the small orange chevron located at the top middle of the Enscape Viewport to expand it.

You should also see a panel to the right of the Viewport containing a contextual Help Panel to assist you to quickly become comfortable and familiar with the Enscape User Interface and it’s layout and associated functions. You can quickly open / close the Help panel using the [H] key or with a mouse click.
