See the minus sign "-" at the top right of some of the modules?  If you click on it, it will hide that module.  Click "+" to open it back up again!

Some modules have a little printer icon at the bottom.  Click on the printer to open that module in its own page for printing.  That way, you don't have to print the entire page!

Help for Using the TOPCC Website

How to use the Main Menu Bar Minimize

Main Menu Tabs:

You can click on one of the main buttons on the menu bar to get a general page on that area.  You don't always have to click on a sub-menu option.

For example, if you click on "General Info", you can view a description of each of the pages under that button.


If you hover over one of the main menu buttons, a sub-menu will display.  You can click on any of the items on the sub-menu.

Additional Sub-Menus:

Some of the menus have sub-menus themselves when you hover over them.  These additional sub-menus will open up to the right.

For example, if you hover over "SIGs / Programs", then move your mouse down and hover over "Software Review", a sub-menu called "Published Reviews" will open.  You can click on either Software Review to get the main page, or "Published Reviews" to see the reviews that have been published.
