Like the regular browser, you can add as many new tabs as you wish, but the last one, no matter what site it displays, cannot be closed. Right clicking anywhere on the screen, a drop down menu with several quick actions, and more important, the Admin menu, will be displayed.

The Admin acts as the control panel for this utility. From there you can set up the account, restore all previous settings to default, enable and disable some features. Admin can gain access to the tools customization settings and the most important, close the app and unlock the PC. Furthermore, when the installation process is over, two icons are generated.
