Each WebEx panel in the group has its own title bar. You can see here in blue, one is Participants, a listing of everyone who is logged in along with some details about their audio settings and the way in which they're logged in. You also see Chat, which is an in-session instant message tool, and if you're a host and presenter you'll have additional panels too, such as Polls, Q&A, and PowerPoint Notes. Each title bar has a small triangle or arrow button in the top-left corner that controls the display of that panel.
Clicking the button will collapse and expand the panel so that you can use the features or get them out of the way. So go ahead and click that triangle or arrow to collapse the Participant Panel and click it again to expand. If you're using a PC or a Windows based computer, you'll see buttons at the top of the screen that act as toggles that will display or not display the panel. If you click the first one, the Participant Panel goes away and leaves more room for Chat. If you click it again, the Participant Panel is displayed.
If you're using a Macintosh computer, you'll see those buttons at the bottom of the screen. Go ahead and click the button to display the Participant Panel or to hide the Participant Panel. None of these changes affect how the panels look to others. Each participant controls his own panels. In addition to the buttons that you see, you also have a Panels menu. If you're using a Windows-based machine, in addition to the buttons above the Participant Panel, you also see a Panels menu.
It's a drop-down arrow in the top-right corner of the screen. When you click that button, you see options to restore the layouts to the original setup. You can hide panels or manage panels using this menu. If you're using a Macintosh computer, you'll find that same menu in the lower-right corner of the screen. Go ahead and click the menu now to explore the options that you have. If you're using a Windows-based machine, you'll also be able to grab the edge of the panel and drag it to make it wider.
If you drag to the left, the panels become wider. If you drag to the right, the panels become more narrow. You can also use the dividing lines between the panels to make one panel shorter and the other one taller. So as you can see, each participant can control their own panels. And this becomes important later; you'll need to give participants instructions on how to control their panels so they're displaying the correct information at the right time.
