How do I lower the graphics settings for the editor?
I can lower the settings for the game itself (e.g. for when you're using Play in Editor) but I can't figure out where to lower the graphics settings for when I'm in the editor. Really need this because my computer is a potato :(

You can do so by going to Settings -> Engine Scalability Settings and turning down most of those settings. Some don't apply in-editor but the ones that can will. This Settings button is located on the main editor toolbar.
You can also disable real time thumbnails in the content browser by clicking the "Options.." button.
Might also want to disable the real-time viewport by clicking the downward arrow in the viewport and unchecking Realtime.
At the top of the engine (where the marketplace icon is) you will see an icon called "Setting", press it, then look for Engine Scalability Settings, and press Low, but I do not 100% recommend the low settings as it makes vertices look terrible, but I still use it, but I might change
