Display Mode

Description

 

Password Vault Manager allows control on how the entry itself is displayed and on how the URL defined in the entry is viewed. There is three types of display mode:

 

External

Embedded

Undocked

 

Please note that not all entry supports the three modes. It all depends on the integration and the availability of the third party application.

External Mode

 

The External mode session is opened as an external process with no direct link to Password Vault Manager.

 

This display mode usually launches the native application. The external mode will automatically run on the Primary monitor. Depending on the type of session, an external mode session view will be updated if Password Vault Manager can detect that its running.

 

Embedded Mode

 

An embedded entry runs within the confines of the Password Vault Manager windows and display tabs at the top of the window. This mode centralizes the opened session in the application which makes it easy to switch from one to another.

 

There are several entry-specific actions available by right clicking (Context Menu) on the tab title.

You can also show the session footer (Description, Information, Attachments, Sub Connections, Logs, etc.) at the bottom of the screen and capture a screenshot of the content.

Undocked

 

While the embedded mode is useful in some cases, you may prefer to move the content in an external window. If so, this can be easily done using the context menu. Password Vault Manager will create a new window to contain the tabbed entry allowing you to move it anywhere else (i.e. on another screen ).

 

To dock the content back to its original place, use the context menu by right clicking on the window icon.
