I have many computer issues , a ton of books , and I can not figure any of them out.

:flowers: Me either. I can only read so much before I have to ask a (probably) dumb question. So I continue to read, and ask (probably) dumb questions.
:thumbsup: In fact I encourage just that. I like to read the answers to (probably) dumb questions. Then I feel (probably) smart. :trumpet: Until I read more.

It never ends,
but at least here we can enjoy some brief periods of satisfaction commiserating amongst ourselves as we face the challenges made necessary by a technically advancing world.

BTW, the answer to [FONT=Optima][SIZE=7][COLOR=blue] is:
After typing whatever to the right of those tags...look off to the right of those dropdown menus where you got them in the first place. You'll see "close tags". Select to do that & then try "preview" and you see a noticable difference in the posts.

I'm goin' be checkin' for your next one, now....
patiently patrolling, plenty of persisant pests n' problems ...

Yep.. :thumbsup: Reminds me of Don Henley's song "The heart of the matter.."

And the more I know, the less I understand
All the things I thought Id figured out
I have to learn again..

Guess all life is about learning and forgetting what we learned. :flowers:
Welcome and have fun.. :trumpet:

Down in the bayou, Bubba called an attorney and asked, "Is it true they're suin' the cigarette companies for causing people to get cancer?
"Sure is Bubba. But why you asking?"
"Cause what I want to know is, I was thinking, can I sue Budweiser for all them ugly women I've slept with?"
