I think the tool box you are referring to is the dash board. If you wish to stop this appearing please open ActivInspire and in the bottom left hand coner of the dashboard you will see “show dashboard window on start up” please un-tick this option if you do not wish to see the dashboard.
It is not the dashboard. It has different pens with colors and some boxes at the top. It shows up on the board, but not on our computer screens. I am going to try and attach a picture for you to see it.
