I post for a good answer

Alot of internet questions that people type in google have forum and subs listed in the answers to these questions. Plus i enjoy answering a few newbie q's myself. So when a question comes up on newbie forum, telling them to google it is a dense idea..and you should be smacked in the face with a monitor <3 U all Happy If you are just trying to up your post #'s and have no idea what the answer is... do it in another forum, thx Happy

Are you aware that the Moderators in

these forums get ZERO pay and are expected to read each and every post in the forums that they are responsible for. Pure volunteers, some such as the one(s) you are referring to have done this for years and found giving links gives them the oopportunity to cover ALL OF their responsibilities, especially where the question has been asked numerous times, and feel that they should have first done a search. Their flaw [thepersons that reply with Google searches is that a person posting in the forum for the first time really can feel rejected].

Believe it or not the prime responsibility of the Mods in their forum is to maintain decorum and not allow violations of the TOS.

At times I also find that frustrating, but knowing two Mods fairly well, I fully understand.

I wasn't attempting to give you a hard time or be smug by telling you to Google your questions here:

Sometimes an unintentional short attitude may be interpreted in my answers when I am simply trying to be brief or efficient in my explanations.

What I meant was that with little alteration, if you were to put your questions into Google, you would get some good answers. This is especially true for questions #1 and #3.

If you don't have any success with Google or another search engine, by all means, feel free to tell us that and we will gladly give you more help and direction.

I get it now, i've been playing on this forums and another for a good 3 hours in two days. Some kid asked how to enable duel monitor view, i just put on ""

I do get it, i guess it takes a few posts to get that. Whoever posts with BOB says some funny stuff though, i've been looking at his.

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?
