Topic Wiki

This is the thread where you can ask any random question you have. Feel free to ask even the most basic questions that you otherwise might be embarrassed to ask. This is the thread for beginners, so veterans here will treat you nicely. Ask a beginner's Q in some other threads and no guarantee of that same treatment. ;)
People here want to help, so just have some patience, follow the tips below and hopefully someone will help you when they have a chance.

If you looking for a particular thread you once saw and can't find it, this is not the place to ask. Check out Help Me Find It and ask there.

How to ask a question in this thread:
Click the blue reply button at the top or bottom of the page, type your question, and click post!

Some helpful tips for eliciting answers from other members:
- Keep your question short and precise. No one wants to read a megillah.
- The more questions you ask in one post, the less likely any will be answered. People are wiling to answer a question or two, but if you ask all the questions that apply to your particular issue, you're expecting to be spoonfed. Members don't like holding out the spoon, so ask accordingly.

Once I post in a thread, that thread will always pop up in "Show new replies...", unless I "Ignore" the thread. But if I do that, then when I post in that thread a year later, I don't see the replies, because it's in "Ignorance mode". So of course I can "Unignore" it. But is there a simpler way to set this up, i.e. to stop seeing replies until I post again in that thread? Thanks.
Bump.
I'm having the same problem. Is there a way that I can only see threads that people have quoted me?

you buy the night, they make the reservation for you and add your name to it. You check in (preferably by yourself) If they ask you where the account holder is (they usually do not) you say he is on his way. You get the room and bring in whoever you need to bring in

How do you take a screenshot in IE and post to WA? All from the computer. WA is loaded on the computer.

In WA, is there a camera icon near where you input your message?  (On phone there is) click and browse to the SC.

Open paint on your computer. Got to the IE page you want to screen shot, and hit the print screen button in the upper right corner of the keyboard. Go back to paint and paste it there. Crop as needed. Save to desired folder. Open folder image was saved to, drag and drop in whatsapp convo. Let me know if you need clarification on any of those steps.

Without having done this before..

You may be able to use the Snipping Tool instead of paint.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.
