How to restore your Module Overview block to My home when you've 'lost' it

If you can no longer see your list of modules in the centre of your My Home page here are three things that might have happened.


The block was contracted (closed-up)

If your My Modules looks like this then you have contracted it

Click the down arrow icon (marked in the image) to show the full list.


The block has been docked

In the image above there is a second icon to the left of the down arrow with a '+' in it.

Clicking that docks the block - i.e. it turns it into a tab and moves it from its normal position to the top left hand side of the screen as shown in the graphic below:

In the example, there is blank space in the centre where My Modules should be.  The title of the tab on the left, indicated by the red arrow, is Module Overview. Note: If you move the cursor over the tab of a docked block, the contents will appear. 

To undock a single block, hover over the tab. In the pop-up window that appears click on the Undock icon.

To undock all blocks click on the icon highlighted in the graphic below.
