"HOW TO" COLUMN

Post by Dr Chris » 25 Jan 2013 07:33

'HOW TO' LISTS?

Hi Gerrit,
Please could you see this as a plea for those of us who are somewhat PC illiterate, and create a "platform" for us to follow instruction, and in particular I refer to such items as:
1. Loading/pasting/transfer of pics
2. Changes in passwords etc.
3. Any other that would have generic connotations (e.g. for template forming etc?)
4. Other?

I am sure there are m any of us who would dearly love to communicate but are hesitant because of our own inadequacies?

Humbly,
Chris

Morning everyone

Just a tip on uploadings pics, first email the pic to yourself normally you will then be able to reduce the size of the pic which makes uploading much quicker, what I have done is to open a Patrol forum pictures folder so that I do not accidently save the reduced size pic into the original folder and then deleting original pic.

I see that some people have "thanked" and "been thanked". How does that work? Is there some button that has to be pressed to do this?
