Navigate the ESET Inspect Web Console

Look at how to navigate your way through the ESET Inspect Web Console interface. You can soon become familiar with the navigational elements and tools of the ESET Inspect Web Console, which aim to be intuitive and easy to use while being interactive.

Here is an overview of most of the interface's elements:

Side bar

Use the navigation bar on the left side to switch between different parts of the ESET Inspect console:




























Toolbar at the top is available at all times:


ESET PROTECT ecosystem / ESET Business ecosystem—A quick access to the ESET PROTECT Web Console and other useful links.

Learning mode / Questions—Items that concern some of the ESET Inspect functionality (for example, automatic exclusions, database purge, LiveGrid®, etc.).

All Computers—Acts as a quick filter. Click to view groups or computers and make your selection.

Help—Links to Online Help for the current screen. ESET Inspect Product Tour shows main features of the product. License opens the web page with ESET Inspect End User License Agreement. The About page provides detailed information about the ESET Inspect version and links to legal documents.

User (currently logged in)—Shows the username.

Logout—Shows the time remaining until automatic logout. The timer is reset every time you interact with the ESET Inspect Web Console (click a button, tab, submenu or an item). Click Logout to leave the ESET Inspect Web Console, or to log in as a different user.

Side panel layout


Click the three_dots icon next to the section name (Computers) to adjust the side panel layout using the context menu (available options may vary based on the current layout):

Hide side panel

Show side panel


Groups and Tags


Preview panel

Click a Computer name or Detection to display the preview panel on the right side. While serving as a quick view, this panel contains vital information about the selected Computer or Detection.


You can use tags to further refine filtering of displayed items. Available tags are listed in the Tags side panel (click the three_dots icon to adjust the view). To add tags to a computer, select a computer (or multiple computers) and use the action button Tags at the bottom.


Table view is present in many ESET Inspect Web Console sections. You can modify and rearrange the columns to your needs. To reorder, hover the mouse over the icon_move_drag icon next to the column name and drag-and-drop to the desired position. To sort, click the column you want to sort by. This results in ascending (A–Z, 0–9) sorting, click again for descending (Z–A, 9–0). A small arrow before the column header indicates the sorting behavior. Click the gear gear_icon icon for table options, add or remove columns according to your needs. See the definition of each column.

Context menu / Action buttons

Right-click an item in the table for the context menu with all available actions. The buttons on the bottom of the page are unique for each section and function, and are described in detail in their respective chapters.


Usually, there are too many results displayed in the table, and that is where filtering comes to the rescue. To narrow down the view when searching for specific items (computer, detection, incident, executable, script, etc.) use pre-defined filter(s) or add a custom one. To further refine the results, combine the filters. If you want to recall the filter combination in the future, click Presets button and save it.


Add filter and filter presets

To add filtering criteria, click Add filter and select item(s) from the list. Click Presets to manage or recall filter sets. See detailed information about filters.
