ABSTRACT:
A system of user navigation through large computer programs with many screens provides the user with a set of clickable actuators that indicate the path taken to the user's current position in the hierarchy and that provide an intuitive method for returning to any previous level. The clickable actuators form a coherent image that is consistent with an overall theme or metaphor related to the subject matter of the information presented.
