For example the default workspace for the Windows OS Process navigator item doesn't give a table listing of all the processes running on that system. However, the Process Overview workspace does. Normally you have to navigate to the Process item in the Physical navigation tree and then right->click and select workspaces to get to the Process Overview workspace. In IE I have setup a few bookmarks (i.e., Add to Favorites) for a few of my systems so that I can go directly to the Process Overview workspace. From the IE Favorites menu item I just select my previously saved favorite (e.g., Process Overview (GBS301)). This will take me directly to the workspace. You can bookmark any workspace. This will also work if you are not logged into the TEP. If you select a bookmarked workspace from a browser outside the TEP it will navigate you directly to the bookmarked workspace. If you have security turned on it will ask you for your password. If you don't have security turned on it will go directly to the bookmarked workspace.

Navigating the new TEP GUI can be a little daunting for a first time user. Especially when you start linking between workspaces and you want to remember a specific workspace in a previous navigation. When you are using the TEP Browser you can bookmark your favorite workspaces in your browser (e.g., in Internet Explorer (IE).
