How do I get to the configuration menu in the Harmony HMISTW Web HMI?

Issue
After configuring an HMISTW6400 HMI to open a webpage, how do I go back into the configuration menu in order to set the IP Address again or change the web URL?

Environment
Physical touchscreen HMI with embedded web browser

Resolution
To access the configuration menu on the HMI, swipe down from the top of the screen at the center.
If the screen is not calibrated, you may need to initiate the press with your finger from very close to where the black bezel film meets the screen area or just above the viewable screen area.
Try pressing fairly hard and slowly swipe downwards towards the center of the screen at a speed of 1 inch / 2.5cm per second.

TIP: If you are having trouble with the finger swipe, you can plug in a USB mouse to perform the same action.

You'll then see a "gear" button appear on the right side of the menu bar. You will then be prompted with a password entry.
The default password when you get to the login screen is: "Admins"

From there, go to the "+Servers" list, and you can enter in the preset URLs for the HMISTW to be able to view.

Example, if you have a webserver at an IP address of 192.168.1.100:
From there, you can go to the +Servers list and re-enter the URL as:
"http://192.168.1.100"

Note: Always include "http://" as a prefix before your IP Address (or hostname).
Otherwise, the "qrc:/qml_schneider/" prefix will be added (this comes from the fact that the HMI is based on PyQt technology) if you don't explicitly write "http://" before the IP Address.
