The title essentially says it all, the graphics help page is outdated, the latest BONIC client doesn't have a "Work" tab or a "Show Graphics" button.

An updated version of that page is something I'd wish to have.

The Work tab has been renamed to Tasks, however there is still a Show Graphics button for workunits currently running on your CPU. Note non-running tasks or tasks running on your GPU do not have Show Graphics.

So all they need to change is the Work tab for Tasks?

Oh god, I didnt see the "Show graphics" button until now, maybe having images would help?

The back pages of the project are hardly ever changed, dead links galore. No man power and money to do so.
But the BOINC User Manual is at least updated on a regular basis. and while it doesn't show per project what the screen saver may show, it does show images of most things in BOINC.
