When multiple graphs are opened in the Maltego client, they will each have their own tab above the main graph window. Graphs that have not been saved yet will be displayed as New Graph (number). Once a graph is saved, the display name on the name tag will change to the name under which it was saved. The graph name will be written in bold when changes are made to graph that have not been saved yet.
The first tab is always the Home screen that includes the Start Page and Transform Hub:
Right-clicking on a graph’s tab will open the dropdown menu described in the image below:
The Shift Left and Shift Right buttons from the drop down menu can be used to change tab ordering. The other items not described in the image above are used to make a graph tab into its own floating window however these options are rarely used.
Graph tabs can also be re-arranged by clicking and dragging the tab to another position:
Tab Bar Buttons
Navigating the display is always an issue of being able to see only what you want to see. For this reason, the Maltego client has been made very versatile and adaptable. As discussed previously graphs are maintained in tabs which can be flipped through. The next section details some of the options available display information windows. On the top right-hand side of the graph the following options are available:
When there are more tabs than can be displayed, the additional tabs will not be shown. The first two buttons in the image above allow you to scroll left and right through the tabs that are not shown.
The third button in the tab bar opens a drop down that shows all the graphs that are currently open. The arrow points to the graph that is currently in view.
The last button in the tab bar will maximize the graph window and minimize all other windows in the Maltego client as shown in the image below. Double clicking the graph tab will also maximize the graph window.
Clicking the button again will restore the windows to their previous state.
