    Shawn, I wish I could say I'm well-rested......I don't get much sleep, I think I need to talk to my doctor and get a prescription.

    I have made a copy of your instructions. I think I may have a question or two. I'm too tired right now to get my thoughts together, but if okay with you I will post in a day or two on this forum. Thanks for your help.

    Sleep pattern still bad. I still need to do my questions. I watched Pope Francis on TV the past 2 days and watched some today as well. I'll also be watching for the next 2 days when he's in Philly. Will probably get my questions In order after his Philly visit. I do have one question not related to your tutorial though about product support for Windows 8.1. The information I have is that Microsoft will support 8.1 through 1/10/23. Is that correct? Thanks, again, Shawn for your help.

    No problem. I'll be here when you're ready.

    Windows 8.1 lifecycle is indeed January 10th 2023 for extended support.
