Sorry, I don't understand what mean. Can you post a screen capture of what you are describing? Use the Snipping tool to capture it. Use the paper clip drop down next to the Smiley face to upload and include the picture in your next post here.

Hello and welcome to the SevenForums Wcb007,

I have to say that don't understand it either..

To add to Ztruker his reply;
Creating a screenshot with the snipping tool is explained in this tutorial. It also explains how to upload it on the forum, but for that I recommend reading this tutorial, as it is created for use on the SevenForums.

Good luck and keep us posted,
