I know a number of you have found the Smartboard floating tool bar icon on the left hand side of the screen somewhat irritating. But as with most things there is a simple solution.
If you right-click on the Smartboard icon in the shortcut tray on the bottom right of your screen then you should see an option to “Hide Floatimg Tools”
If later you wish to have the floating tools available, simply right-click on the Smartboard icon in the shortcut tray and this time click to option to “Show floating tools”.
Even better news – the product manager of Smartboard, Jenna Pipchuk, has said that the abililty to change and fix the position of the floating toolbar icon will be incorporated in a service pack later in the summer.
I hope this proves useful.
