Yes, I've read the rules about posting, but am still puzzled.
I am not a frequent visitor to this or other computer fora, thus consider myself a 'newbie' still, so I could be missing some basic bit of wisdom.
So here is the quandary: I posted a perfectly serious question about a situation I encounter in my computer use, and since my OS is Win 7, I felt this was the place to put it. Having looked through the list of forum sections and subsections, it seemed to be the most appropriate.
When I checked back to see if there was an answer, I found that a moderator had moved my query to General chat, as "This is not a Windows 7 issue or situation". General chat seems to be more - shall I say 'recreational' topics. To quote from the synopsis: "this forum may be used to post topics of a general, non-help related nature." (Also the Google Results link in the reply points me to Linux/Unix related pages, which I don't think are going to help me).
Grateful for any enlightenment.
