The HTML5 Viewer's default configuration has a menu for common tasks, such as opening the list of map layers and returning to the initial extent. The menu is called the I Want To menu because the default text on the button that opens the menu is "I want to...". In the Desktop and Tablet interfaces, the I Want To button is in the top left corner of the map. In the Handheld interface, the button is at the top left of the screen.
