A quick way to show and hide BoincTasks, is by assigning a "hot key" like e.g. F12 to show and hide.

In Projects and Tasks you can rearrange the columns, by dragging and drop the column header.

You can rearrange the tool-bars, by picking them up and drag them to another location.

The computer sidebar can be height and width adjusted, by dragging the bar out off the locked position, adjust the dimensions and drag it back.

A graphic can be maximized by a double click on the graph. (V0.88 and up)

A quick way to retry tasks in Transfers is by double clicking on the task, this will also break the project back-off.

Filters can be temporarily removed, by double clicking on a filtered line. To enable filtering again, double click on any task, with the state that was previously filtered.

Once you select a row, the selections stays visible. To remove this selection hold the "Ctrl" and select the row.

A selection can be used to follow a task as it progresses, as the selection stays locked on the same task. Multiple tasks can be selected by holding the "Ctrl" or "Shift" key.

A group of tasks, packed together by a filter rule, can be temporarily expanded by a double-click on it. Next double-click on these tasks will group them again.

You can also double-click the selected row.
Because double click is the filter on/off option. Not recommended to remove the selection.
