Title: NARROW MODE NAVIGATION PANE
Abstract:
A narrow mode navigation pane [400] is provided that may be selectively displayed as a replacement of a normal mode [230] or full- size navigation pane to allow more computer display space for displaying other user interface content, The narrow mode navigation pane[400] is divided into sections. Selection of a 'Navigation Pane' control [255,260,265,270] causes the temporary display of a pop¬ up [700] version of the normal mode navigation pane [230] for allowing a user to view and/or select the full contents of the normal size navigation pane [230] without toggling to the normal mode navigation pane [230]. Other sections of the narrow mode navigation pane [400] may include selectable controls representing a useful subset of controls normally populated in the normal mode pane [230],
