Note: If we are currently closed, clicking this button will generate an after-hours email to us.

 

Moving and minimizing the chat window

Once your chat is in process, if you're finding that the chat window is obscuring parts of your screen, you can easily minimize it and restore it, using the button in the upper right corner as shown below:

You can also move the chat window to a more convenient part of your screen any time. Just click the bar at the top of the chat window to move it:
