A tab is a window fixed in the main program window. You can switch from tab to tab using buttons on the tab panel. The tab panel is highlighted in red in Fig. 1.4.
Each tab opened in the DICOM Viewer window corresponds to a button on the panel. To switch to a particular tab, click the corresponding button (Fig. 1.5). The file path or other information about the tab content is displayed on the tab button.
To manage a tab, use the buttons in its top right-hand corner (highlighted in red in Fig. 1.6).
Tab management buttons:
|The Full screen button displays the tab in the full screen mode. The tab management buttons are unavailable. To exit, press Esc or F11.|
|The Separate window button displays the tab in a separate window.|
To switch to the full screen mode, you may as well press F11, and to go back, you can use F11 or Esc. If the tab is displayed in a separate window, the DICOM Viewer workspace looks as shown in Fig. 1.7.
The window management buttons are located in the top right-hand corner of the window (highlighted in red in Fig. 1.7). Window management buttons:
|The Fix window button embeds the window as a tab in the main DICOM Viewer window.|
|The Full screen button displays the window in the full screen mode. The window management buttons are unavailable. To exit the full screen mode, press Esc or F11.|
|The Minimize window button reduces the window to an icon located at the bottom of the screen (highlighted in red in Fig. 1.8). The window title is written on the icon.|
|The Expand button expands the window to the full screen. Unlike the full screen mode, the window management buttons will be available.|
|The Close button closes the window.|
|The Restore down button restores the initial window size.|
To unfold a window from an icon, double-click the left mouse button on the icon.
