    Default How To..........

    I've noticed recently that a lot of the newer (& some not so new) folks don't know how to do certain things that some of us take for granted. So I was thinking that it might be good to have a list somewhere.
    So, I've compiled a list of those things that we often go back to or try to remember where they are so we can go back to them!
    Also a few things that maybe folks could do with being reminded of and one or two things you just may not have known existed.

    Here's the list:
