bars hide themselves once a link is selected.
This expands the browser to the edges of the window for
extended page viewing. If you have the 'Auto' setting
selected, moving the mouse over either the left or right
edges of the browser will pop the respective research link
bar back into view. If you have the 'Click' setting
selected, you need to click in the black space between the
window edge and web page border to activate the research
link bar. If you have the Alt-A setting selected, you
need to press the Alt-A key combination to activate the
research link bars. The link bars will disappear once you move
your mouse over the web page area or select a link either on
the bar or a web page. They will also disappear after
7 seconds of inactivity.

extend beyond the bottom of the screen if this is set to a
higher number. For users with low screen resolutions, you
may want to experiment with the font size of the portfolios,
