The System Toolbar is composed of toolbar buttons (i.e., icons) displayed on both sides of the bottom of each screen. Unlike the Screen Footer, the System Toolbar is FIXED at the very bottom of the screen, even if you scroll through the screen.
(On the EHBs Home Page, the System Toolbar may also contain the date and time of your last login.)
The very first time that you login to the system, a toolbar alert message will be displayed above the System Toolbar, in order to make you aware of it.
The toolbar alert message will remain on the screen, and will also be displayed on other screens, until you remove it, even if you login again.
To remove the toolbar alert message, click the X button at the top right side of the message. You will not see the message on any other screen, even after future logins.
If you hover your mouse pointer over a toolbar button, hover-text will be displayed, indicating the function of the toolbar button.
If you click a toolbar button, an appropriate pop-up will be displayed for you to enter details or to select items to be displayed.

Additional Toolbar Buttons on Some Screens
The right side of the System Toolbar may contain additional toolbar buttons (to the left of the standard toolbar buttons) on 'work screens', such as the Prepare New NGA screen in Awards. Two of these additional toolbar buttons are:
- An [Action] toolbar button, which allows you to perform the same functions as in the Action Dropdown at the bottom of a screen. Since the toolbar buttons do not scroll with the rest of the screen, this toolbar button is useful if you are positioned in the middle of a screen, and cannot readily access the Action Dropdown.
- A [View Links] toolbar button, which allows you to view relevant folders and documents.
- [Screen Section Pointer] toolbar buttons, which when clicked, will scroll the screen to the corresponding section.
* If you click the [Messages on Page] toolbar button . . .
. . . the screen will automatically scroll to any message that appears on the top of the screen
* If you click the [Personal Comments] toolbar button . . .
