Configuring Slicer GUI layout and display

General Information

Background: this module is set as Slicer's default startup module unless a user checks the box (in the User greeting panel) to supress this behavior. If the option to show the welcome module at startup is de-selected, Slicer will display the user-specified Home module on startup. The Data Module is selected as Home unless a user explicitly chooses another module.

The following informational panels are provided in the module, and populate the GUI from top to bottom. They provide a brief overview of their respective topics and provide links to additional information.
