If I use mfrow=c(2,3), and produce my plots one after the other, I will end up with three plots in the first row, and 2 in the second row, which is what I want. However, I would like the two plots in the second row to be moved to the centre of that row, rather than occupying the two left-most cells.

Here is a brute force way:

par(mfrow=c(2,3)) #set up 2 rows x 3 colums

plot(1:10) #plot 1
plot(1:10) #plot 2
plot(1:10) #plot 3
par(mfg=c(2,2))  # start next plot at 2,2 instead of 2,1
 plot(1:10)       # 4th plot
