Every application and parameter PATROL discovers running on a monitored computer is represented as an icon on the PATROL Console. Application icons appear in the icon window of the computer they run on. Parameter icons appear in the icon window of the application or the computer they are associated with.

To access an application, double-click on the computer icon with the left mouse button. To access a parameter, double-click on an application with the left mouse button.

PATROL determines the application or parameter class and selects the appropriate icon from a library of icons. That icon is displayed for every instance of the application or parameter.
