The Results Ticker

When New Results or New Documents are available they are displayed on a Scrolling Ticker. The Ticker will float above all of the windows applications notifying the user of Unreviewed Results while Explorer is running.

The Results Ticker ensures all results are visible to the Explorer user as they arrive therefore maximising the speed with which results are viewed.

To view a Result using the Results Ticker, double click the Result:
