Screens in ALERE can be resized by grabbing an edge with your mouse and enlarging or shrinking it to meet your needs.
Clicking on the green bar at the top of the screen will permit moving it to a different location on your monitor. And finally, using the buttons on the top right of a screen we can employ the common windows functions to minimize or maximize screen size.
Minimizing a screen produces a “thumbnail” that is automatically located out of the way. This can be a real convenience because ALERE supports opening multiple screens and your “desktop” can become quite cluttered.
Once in a while however, the tiny thumbnail refuses to be returned to its original size using the maximize button.
Should this happen to you, clicking on the ALERE icon, on the left hand side of the thumbnail, will display a menu. Choosing the Restore option will open the screen that was minimized.
This is just a product tip to solve a little, albeit annoying, problem.
