All Contents

The Altium NEXUS Home Page is a standalone web page that can be opened as a tab in Altium NEXUS. The page gives you access to user-focused content, including new features, webinars, videos, blogs, and tutorials. The information on this page is continuously updated and videos are added to help keep you up-to-date on Altium NEXUS's functionality.

The Home Page is opened when the application is started. You can close the Home Page tab by right-clicking on the tab then choosing Close Home Page.

If you do not want the Home Page to open upon starting Altium NEXUS, disable the Open Home page on start option on the System - General page of the Preferences dialog.

To access the Home Page after the tab has been closed, click the  icon at the top-right corner of the design space.

If you do not see the  icon, ensure you are using the latest version of Altium NEXUS.
You also can use the Open in Browser command (at the lower left of the Home Page) to open the Home Page in your browser.

The following sections describe the different areas to which you can navigate from the left-hand side of the page.
