Hey Bob! Thanks for your help. I just finished a piece I started and wanted to post. How do I get it to be a sticky?

You make it and if it meets a few criteria...

Either our Mac expert or maybe I will "saint" it.

Take a close look at the welcome crafted by whizkid. Notice it's meant to be rather "timeless" and has not much other than the welcome and the invite for the content to be added later.

We can't edit it so it has to be "just right." The replies can be deleted by us so you or others can add to the sticky and we can delete an out of date item as the member wants to replace it.

Its an odd system but it seems to work.

Went ahead to make the first post :D. Hopefully this will be able to help new Mac users in the future. Glad to see a sticky here.

Bob, mind if I add stickies to the other two Mac forums?

Seeing as hardware differs from software, and the actual system, I figure they could be useful there too. Just thought I could help out some.

Always welcome to try.

I'd try to get a little better formatting. The less lines the better so to compact it but don't create one of this monoparagraph hard to read things. The welcome in this forum and the camcorder are good examples.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
