Bar Handles CoolBar Handles

Click to open and close the CoolBars revealing Tabs and Items. Drag the handle Left and right to resize the CoolBar. Drag it up and down to move the CoolBar around within the menu.

Group Tabs logically together on each CoolBar. For example:
  • Desktop - Main, Comms, Tools, Accessories, Docs
  • Web - Browser, Email, Web Pages, HTML Tools
  • Games - Action, Flight Sim, Cards, Demos
Have the most used frequently used CoolBar at the top of the menu on a row of its own. This way your most frequently accessed documents and applications are only 1-2 clicks away.
Click to select the required Tab. The aim is to group together applications and documents (Items) in a logical way, so that it will be obvious which Tab an Item will be found in.

For example:
  • Control Panel - System Tools
  • Microsoft Paint - Graphics
  • Letter Template - WP Templates
As the first Tab on each CoolBar is always the one visible on startup it's a good idea to place all the most commonly used Items irrespective of type or function on this Tab. This way you will not have to keep clicking between tabs while going through your everyday work.
