Windows 7: Solved threads, how do I edit my account list?

Solved threads, how do I edit my account list?

I have about 5 threads and some of them are solved and I have marked them as such.

I cannot find a tutorial on how to house-keep "My Account"

Q:- do I (as the starter) have to edit the original thread title "My question?" as "(Solved) My question" ?
. I cannot find how to edit the thread title

In My account "Subscriptions"
- ticked items are solved and I am not to sure what to do with them
Q:- when I check the right-hand field (of each item) what does "Selected Threads:= Move to folder" mean?
. whose folder -- on my PC or a folder somewhere in 7forums ?
Q:- In the notification field my threads all show "Instant" -- what does this represent ?

Thank you for an excellent forum

You do not need to edit the title. Clicking on the green Solved button will mark the thread as being solved by adding a green check mark to it.

The FAQ's link below can give you more about subscriptions and folders.

The same FAQ's link above can give you more details about this as well. The Instant Email Notification option means that you will be sent an email as soon as a new post is added to the thread. This is not sent for every reply and will only be sent once until you revisit the forums.
Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thank you "Bink"

The tutorial clarified the my vagaries in My Account.

I have decided to save "solved" threads for a period of time in a threads-folder.
Accidentally created a folder in "Private messages > Edit Folder" and then noticed the "Subscribed Threads > Edit Folders"

So now I have a "Resolved" (threads) folder where I move my solved threads to.

Thank you for your help
