problem with view

tree view seems to be the only available view. Flat and threaded don't work. Any others notice this?

But the drop-down menu on each thread page is broken...try switching using the Forum Preferences page option.

What exactly happens?

With the in-thread option, the refreshed page is blank due to improper parsing of the original query string. (Engineers: Hint.)

when did they put the preference in our profiles? I just changed it to flat view and now that is working! I prefer Tree view until I want to read a long thread, I used to be able to switch views whenever I wanted.

Less convenient, but hopefully the other will be fixed soon enough.

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?
