Save: Puzzles in progress are automatically saved so you can leave and return to them later. To continue a puzzle in progress simply select the same puzzle on the Jigsaw Explorer web site and continue play. Jigsaw Explorer will remember the ten most recently uncompleted puzzles.

Rotate: If rotation is enabled then puzzles pieces can be rotated with either the mouse scroll wheel or by using the left and right arrow keys. Pieces can rotated on a touch screen by selecting a piece with a tap and tapping the selected piece again to rotate.

Capture and Release: The capture and release feature is a handy method of quickly and efficiently moving multiple puzzle pieces at a time. Use the "Capture and Release" button in the toolbar to toggle in and out of capture mode. Capture pieces by clicking them, or by swiping over them while pressing the mouse button. Release captured pieces by clicking in any open space of the playing area, or by swiping over open space while pressing the mouse button.

Timer: The timer can be paused by clicking it.

Full Screen Mode: You can expand the puzzle mat to fill the entire screen by pressing the F11 key. You can exit full screen mode by pressing the F11 key again. Note that this is actually a feature of the web browser, rather than a feature of this program, but it is useful for maximizing the space available for working jigsaw puzzles. This feature is only available on Windows PC web browsers.

Restart Puzzle: A puzzle already in progress can be restarted from the beginning by clicking the program menu button (leftmost button on the toolbar) and selecting "Modify this puzzle" from the menu. Then select the desired number of puzzle pieces to restart the puzzle.

Shortcut keys:

Fuzzy pieces: If the puzzle pieces appear a little fuzzy or slightly out of focus then your browser is probably applying too much scaling to the page. Try reducing the browser's zoom setting for sharper looking puzzle pieces.

Sluggish performance: If the puzzle pieces are moving sluggishly then you may need to enable your browser's hardware acceleration setting.
