Thank you CNET!

As I was "mentoring" some students in basic computer class this morning -- I help teach computer classes for our local computer club ----- several asked me how I learned what I know about computers. I do remind them that I was once where they are now -- a beginner transfixed to intermediate (maybe advanced at certain times) (LOL).

I chuckle and tell them --- well, when I worked I did word processing but never got into the nitty gritty of what makes PC's tick. About 4 years ago, my interest level changed and I wanted to know more.

Thanks to cnet I was able to do that. I have gained "bits and pieces" from our local computer club; however, 90% of my knowledge has come from you folks here.

I truly appreciate the mods and their willingness to work with the world in conquering PC situations and sharing their knowledge here at the forum. Thank you too Lee for your efforts in making cnet a great place to come.

Too, a forum would not be such without its members - so kudos to all of us too!

I'm sure I'm speaking for most people here when I say thank you ----- but on a cool, rainy, spring day, for some reason I just needed to say this.

My feeling exactly the same as yours.

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?
