but it is not always that easy.
Some of the problems people post may need several steps or processes to sort them out, and it is always tempting to post a reply that covers every eventuality rather than one that gives a one step process, then wait for a response, then another step, and so on. By the very nature of Windows such "all encompassing" replies can tend to be long.
But you're right of course. Wherever possible, keep it simple is much preferred.
Have you ever received a post to a problem you have that was so long and not to the point?
I like the term KISS! ?Keep It Simple Stupid.? What that really means is that it so simple, anyone can follow your instructions, graphic design set-up or anything you can think of.
Not overly technical and to the point.
Recently, I had a question posted to Windows 95 & 98, that dealt with why is Windows looking for Norton after I have already deleated Norton?
I asked Kees Baker and Toni (Our Moderator) for help, and to please Keep It Simple Stupid for me to understand, since I am not a wizard with Windows.
Kees suggested that Toni gave me the info and what to do. Toni posted to my question.
So simple and direct to the point. KISS!
Thanks to all the Moderators out there! :
