The "Welcome Back" or Login bar (A) is the dark blue bar located at the top of the screen.  When logged in it will show your name.  Clicking on 'Personal Info' (D) will take you to a screen that allows you to change your password and set various options regarding your privacy settings.  By clicking 'Logout' (E) you can terminate your MyCF session.

Site structure is broken down into a series of tabs (B).  Each tab contains multiple pages and subsections of content that pertains to the general theme of the tab name.  Which tabs you can see is determined by the roles that you have been granted.  (ie, those in the Student role only see tabs that pertain to students while faculty and staff each have their own respective roles and tabs.)  When a tab is selected it is a light gray color.

The breadcrumb trail (C) is a means of navigating and keeping track of where you are in the portal.  Each time you drill down a level in the portal a breadcrumb is left.  To jump back up to a higher level within the portal simply click on that level in the breadcrumb.   Using the back button in your browser is not recommended.
