Read vs Unread

Is there a way to determine what you have read and what you've not yet read already? Is the only sorting order by latest posted? If so, is this preliminary, or waiting for other sort options? I also asked in Forum Feedback about having some sort of historical feature added showing top 10-20 posts in each forum by number of Views, and maybe those by number of Posts in a thread. I think that would be an interesting aside when someone found time to do it at CNET. I ran across one technical thread that had 12.5 million hits on it!

How to get back to forum listing?

After posting a message, you seem to get abandoned in the thread. Where's the link to return to the forum's listing of posts? Maybe it's there and I'm just not seeing it.

Hi James, can we keep all the feedback in the Sticky in SE?

Here is the thread:

It will it will answer one of your questions about the link back to the forum listing page.

As for the sorting, we will attempt to get to it. Right now, it just not a high priority as there are many other outstanding things we need to complete. It is on our Forums "Bucket list" just not a high priority. As for the views, it would be fun to have that., but again "fun" is when we have time and I'll be honest with you, maybe in the future, but as of now, we don't have a lot of resources or time. I really wish we did have a lot of time. Sad

tried one of the stickys, but must have hit the locked one by mistake. I do now see some green ink indicating a new addition to the thread. I guess that's not retroactive though, just from this time onward. I'll link to this thread in the sticky.

Correct message marking is not retroactive unfortunately.

It starts new with this move to the new platform.

Locking this thread. THanks James!

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?
