Use parentheses to exclude MatrixForm from the definition of A

(A = {{1, 2, 3}, {4, 5, 6}, {7, 8, 9}}) // MatrixForm

A[[1, 1]]

1

A[[1]][[1]]

1

=============
Hello there

I am new to Mathematica.  In one of my attempts to understand how it works,
I tried the following example

A={{1,2,3},{4,5,6},{7,8,9}} //MatrixForm

The result seems to be a matrix 3x3 but when I try A[[1][1]], the whole
first line shows up instead of just one element.  If I don't use MatrixForm,
it works fine.  How can I see a matrix in nice format without wrecking
everything?

Many thanks

Ed
