    Wynona, I was just joking with that :)

    The %s is clearly a variable, Windows uses precent sign for variables. For instance if / when I boot a PC from a USB flash drive in which I have Windows install.wim file to apply Windows image, I do not know which drive letter it gets at boot. When applying Windows image (read: clean install) using a batch file stored on same USB drive which first partitions HDD then applies the image, I open Command Prompt at boot and use the same type variable and run following command:

    for /f %X in ('wmic volume get DriveLetter ^, Label ^| find "W10PRO_USB"') do START %X\Run.bat

    This command searches for all present disks to find the one with label W10PRO_USB, writes that device's disk ID letter (for example D:) to variable %X then runs my batch file %X\Run.bat, in other words in this example D:\Run.bat.

    OK, so you got me! And I wasn't able to make a whole lot of sense of what you just said above either. I'll stick to what I already know and can understand. But thanks for the explanation.

    LOL short explanation: I know that %s in that screenshot refers to, and should be replaced with a number, the %s being just a variable.

    Handwriting pad? I haven't read the latest release notes, so I may be missing something. I don't find a handwriting pad on my desktop.

    I think doing the HTML code for it is just as fast.

    Oh, I don't do the touch keyboard on anything, Edwin. I can type about 80 WPM on my keyboard and only about 10 WPM on the touch keyboard.

    No it shouldn't. That has nothing to do with this threads intentions. Just drop it man. I'm guilty of chiming in on it, but when they said drop it, I dropped it. You are the only one who is continually pushing it.
