Is it possible to move the 'Connections' widget?

I love the Connections feature of Wiki Tree and why I spend a LOT of time connecting profiles but find as there get to be more 'rejected matches' it means I have to scroll WAAAAAAYYYYY down to see if they are connected.  Can it be brought up higher?

An example below.  Nb: I predominately use a desktop.

That record has a lot of rejected merges from the Nov 28, 2018.  There is no record of a merge proposed or rejected in the changes log of many of those records.  Most of the names listed in the rejected merges don't match and the dates are not even close to the other person listed in the profile.  It sounds like someone proposed a ton of merges that were not valid, but I also wonder why there seems to be no record on any of the records that I looked at that mentions the proposed or rejected matches?
@ Linda  All you have to do is go down to where it say "if you find matches for...".  It supplies you with a list of all the profiles which might match, and if you reject any, they show up on the profile.  No merging comes into play at all.
Yes.  In theory, zillions of bad matches thrown up by the system should be rejected so they don't show up again next time.

But then the listings would be a pain.

Also, it would be very hard to find the actual rejected merge proposals that want re-proposing.
Thanks, Ros.  I hadn't looked at that before.  Thanks for the clarification on how they can get to that column.

If you press the 'End' button on your keyboard, it will take you to the very bottom of the page, where the connections widget is,

The 'End' button is typically just above the arrow keys.

As it is an open profile, you can remove some of the rejected merges, especially when a number of the profiles will have had more sources added and are not likely to be nominated again for merging
