Blender 2.8 navigation feature image

Hello Friends in this I will show you how to navigate in Blender 2.8.

Blender 2.8 Orthographic views

Click on the View button. You will see a drop down list. from that list click on Viewpoint then another list will open. From that list click on the Top. Now you see the view has changed. This is a top view of the scene. Similarly if you click on the Front, then you will see all objects in that scene from front view.  This way you can view objects from different view. There is also a Camera view for seeing the objects from camera view.

You don't have to go to the View > Viewpoint to set the view to different angle. You cant set this with keyboard controls. You can see that beside the Front, Top etc button there is a keyboard keys given. You can press the keyboard keys to change the views. Like if you press NUMPAD 7 the view will change to Top View. You can see it in the below image.
