Whatever program you are using, at the top of it hit help> type in the search field "the question", and see what you come up with.
also the help file on the start menu usually works pretty good.
Try this methods first before u post something in the forums, we don't mind helping u guy, but a lot of this questions, can be found out on your own. If and when you really can't find something, or really need help then please feel free to post a problem.
As Lonman said, keep asking....other people learn from the answers that are given....it may even trigger another question in their minds....and if others are fed-up answering what they might term "silly" questions, then they don't need to answer them do they???!
