The Market Navigator window allows you to quickly move from one Betfair market to another. In order to switch between event types, for example from Horse Racing to Soccer, you can use the Quick Pick drop down menu that displays 5 of the most popular event types. If you wish to select an event type that is not shown in the Quick Pick drop down menu you either select it from the event type tree or if this option is turned off you select it from the Event Type drop down menu.
