  • In the top-right corner you see a blow-up of the world map with a red frame that indicates which part is visible in the tool. Click on the arrow to hide the blow-up. Click on the arrow again to make it reappear.

Click on the plus and minus sign in the toolbar to zoom in and out on the big map. Go back to the default size by clicking on the '100%' button. You can also navigate the map by clicking, holding and dragging from side to side. On a touchscreen, you can use your finger to navigate over the map. The red frame in the corner moves accordingly. 

In the settings menu you can adjust the type of map and the elements that the map displays. With the toggle 'Show map labels', you can show or hide all the labels of the elements at once. Close the menu by clicking on the settings button again or by clicking anywhere outside of the menu window.
