    RE: Editing a post.

    There's an "Edit Post" button to the bottom right next to the "Quote" button on each of your posts so click that.

    Editing A Post

    Hi again, Callender,

    I don't see an "Edit Post" button in the bottom right corner of my most recent post.

    On the page you linked me to, under "Can I edit or delete my posts?" it says:

    "Your ability to edit your posts may be time-limited, depending on how the administrator has set up the forum."

    So I suspect that in these forums, there's an editing window of perhaps an hour after a message is posted.

    What do you think? Could you look at one of your recent posts to see if it still has the "Edit Post" button?

    Maybe I don't see it on my posts because I'm such a noob here. Or could it be my browser?

    P.S. I just looked at this message immediately after I posted it, and the "Edit Post" button does indeed appear in the lower right corner. So, it must expire after a certain time limit.

    It might be something where forum members get different options depending upon their member status.

    I suspect that you are right, Callender. When I tried to set up a signature in my personal settings, I was unable to find that option, and assumed that that was because of my junior status. Perhaps my junior status also limits my editing privileges. Time will tell.

    So, now that I have a Windows 10 Start Menu I can live with, thanks in no small part to you, it's time to decide where to go next.

    I think Windows 10 networking is probably the biggest challenge for me, so I'm going to head over to the Network and Sharing forum and take a look at the tutorials.

    Thanks again for the help, and I hope you'll check in with me from time to time to see how I'm making out.

    If you click here when logged in there should be an edit signature option (if available) on the left side.

    Going back to Openshell.

    If you use one of the dual pane layouts and not Classic you get to choose what appears and how it is displayed.

    I don't think I have that option. Here's what I see there:

    A little bit of a necromantic post bump, but I have the exact information asked for in part of the post, as I'm also new to Windows 10 and using Open-Shell (but am very adept at tinkering and pick things up fast). I wanted to put this here in case anyone needs it in the future. The question was in reply 9 asking how to switch quickly between open-shells start menu, and the windows 10 start menu. This provides that option with something as simple as a shortcut and does not require shutting off open-shell or tinkering with any settings.

    Assuming open-shell is installed in the default location use the following command line to either create a typical shortcut or add it into open-shells "Customize Start Menu" menu items.

    "C:\Program Files\Open-Shell\StartMenu.exe" -togglenew

    If it is made as a typical shortcut it can be pinned, or put in quick launch, and provide the windows 10 start menu with one click. Actually in my case I created a second start menu orb on the taskbar right next to the open-shell one, and made it use a similar command to open windows 10 start menu, so I have both whenever I want. This way I can slowly dip my toes into windows 10 start menu, but have the menu I'm familiar with to fall back on.

    Hope someone finds this useful.

    I thought left clicking Start opened OpenShell, and wheel clicking opened Windows 10 Start Menu!?
