The Inventory screen takes the form of tiles, some of which are dimmed, based on the conditions in the Item Search bar. Items are grouped in columns per-character. Within each character, items are grouped by item type.
Items can be moved in a couple of different ways:
- Click on an item and press the icon representing the character you want to move the item to on the Item Popups
- Click and drag an item to the inventory or equipped slot of a character or vault.
- Double click an item to equip it to your "active"/most recently played character.
- Results of a search can be moved to any character or the vault by choosing "Transfer search" from the Character Header that you want to send the items to.
The character header contains information about the character, including current light level, max light level, and other stats. Clicking on a character header will open a dropdown with various automated functions that you can perform on a character. This includes Farming Mode, Loadouts, moving items from an Item Search, and a function quickly applying a loadout to hit your maximum power.

The emblem you have equipped tint that character's column. The Bungie API provides recommended background colors for each emblem. Character columns are shaded with this color (toned down some) to help distinguish between them at a glance. Many of these are fairly dark, so when an emblem comes along with a very bright color, it's pretty noticeable.
