For those that view this forum from a small screen/ cell phone, the right side bar can be annoying/ distracting and it occupies 1/3 of the screen, so you need to scroll down more to read the text of the posted message. This is sort of a two part explanation and also covers a tip on posting/ modifying any program on your puter . The very first thing if you are viewing this from a desktop or laptop/ notebook/tablet***who knows what else**Very first thing is open a second browser, click the + and type KAW, hit active topics and you are automatically logged in. The reason for the second browser, one to read my steps, the second one to do the steps.This applies when you are installing updates on your computer, many times you are requested to do a certain step, without performing that function you aren't allowed to close or leave the page. Having a second browser already open, use your mouse and hover over the second browser that is open, you can click on that all the while the first one is waiting for a response. This allows you to search for answers, Google search or whatever else you are seeking to do. I use a second browser whenever I post, as sometimes I forget what was posted by other members in the same thread, this allows me to view the thread and all the posts using this second browser, then toggle to my first browser and continue to compose my post.
A second reason for a second browser is for when you are composing a long post, possibly with photos in it and someone tells you the food is on the table
my advice is listen
that is right, don't want to screw with a good thing
so when you come back, check your non posting browser and click active topics, chances are good that you are logged out, log back in, now go back and continue posting, if this could take several hours or a long delay, post what you have now, you can always edit later.

Reason for logging in comment
, there have been posts from time to time about why log in when you can view all the same stuff without logging in, just can't use the search /tools functions. Well the above change makes for a good reason, get rid of all those adds and what is happening for a wider screen of text!!
