Let's say you are creating a font.

These would be your choice. How about

Font name: AJER
Author: AJER

The reason to lead off with the letter a is it might pop to the top of a font selection list.

Thanks for your help Bob.

Didn't think about that, tx for the tip.

Now, where it says "File:", what do I put there?

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?
