The console switcher provides convenient access to a list of user-defined console names and their associated addresses. When you select a name from the Consoles drop-down listbox (see Figure 4.4), the Ark console opens a browser tab and navigates to the address associated with the name.

Use the Add URL dialog to provide information about the console for which you are creating a Consoles entry:
Provide the URL of the console in the Url field; please note that the URL must be prefixed with the http protocol identifier.
When you're finished, click the Save button to add the console to the list displayed on the Consoles drop-down.
To modify an entry in the Consoles drop-down, highlight the name of the console in the NAME column and click the Edit URL button. The Edit URL dialog opens (as shown in Figure 4.8).

To remove a URL, highlight the name of the URL in the NAME column and click the Delete URL button. A dialog will open, asking you to confirm that you wish to delete the URL (see Figure 4.9).
