The Function Buttons also operate with function keys.


The function buttons activate when a window is active by selecting a menu item from the main menu.

Multiple windows can be opened at one time and these can be arranged on the ICE desktop by clicking on the title bar and dragging the window to another location on the desktop, minimizing, maximizing or using the Window menu to arrange the the users preference.



If the menu item or speed button is “greyed out” this indicates the option in inactive and there is no access been allocated to the option.
