⚠Only admin users can access the Admin menu.
The Admin menu provides a user interface to manage and configure features in edgeCore. When you start up and log into a standalone edgeCore instance for the first time, the instance is not licensed, so you will only have access to the License and Backup & Restore pages.
To expand the admin menu and view the labels when you hover over the menu, click the Text icon/Show Labels in the bottom-left corner (applies to the 4.3.8 version).
If you no longer want to see the labels/expand the menu, click Hide Labels.
In the 4.3.7 version, the menu is automatically expanded when you hover over it. If you do not want the admin menu to be expanded, you can disable the feature by turning off the Show Labels toggle switch.
