      I was told by a moderator to “Please create a Topic under your version of Win10, using a Title something about asking help for Win10.”

      However, elsewhere I read that the topics are determined by the moderators. Maybe, this means Forum topics are pre-determined.

      So, how can I create a topic, like the one suggested?

      You just did.
      You can access the Forums by clicking the “Forums” button in the top menubar.
      If you have a queation about WIndows, click on the Windows Forum.

      The Forum name is at the top. Below it is the Forum path to tell you where you are.
      For a question about Win7 patches, for example, click on Win7, then Win7 patches.

      At the bottom of each category, there is an entry box for a new Topic. Make the title indicative of your question/problem, then enter your content.

        Another pointer about quoting:
        If you click the “Quote” button, it quotes the WHOLE post.
        It you highlight what you want to quote first, then click “Quote,” it quotes only what you have highlighted.

        I have always wondered how that was done.

        Thanks PKCano!

      Another way is to highlight the text you want and copy/paste it into the reply. Then highlight it in the Reply and click on the ” marks in the above menu.

      And, hoping you don’t mind, I will remove the second copy of my screenshots and just leave your answer.

      Ah, I see you beat me to it.

      Ah, I see you beat me to it.

      yep, and I gave the reason for my editing.

      But, I don’t see my edited post anymore, just yours, so it’s water under the bridge.

      Double-double thanks again for your help.

      P.S. It would be great if there were a button to get a preview screen.
