Hi Nick,

I'll have to check into the category issue with John on why that is, but you can just upload a image for the header image (icon).

Ok Nick. You should be able to select a category now, and Seven Pro and up can select a Icon.

Maybe I'm just missing something obvious, but I'm finding it a bit difficult to find tutorials for Windows 7 Installation. Even doing a search is not real conclusive.

Can a *Windows 7 Installation* Category Icon be added?

This is going to be a much sought after tutorial topic in the coming days and weeks.


Saw a new post yesterday asking if there is a *New Comers Welcome Guide*!
No replies pointed to one. This is a good idea.

If there is one, can you tell me where I can find it.

I have trouble, also finding the right tutorial quickly so as to provide a link to a new person I am helping. For some reason the words I use to search in the turorials don't find the needed one fast enough or they are listed by some other key word.

Is there a better way to search the tutorials ?

Hi Doc,

You can use the tutorial index. They are arranged in alpabetical order by subject. For example, S for anything specifically about the Start Menu.

Is there a particular one you are looking for. I can always help find one for you as well, or possibly create one if we do not have it.

I have used the alphabetical tut index, but it's not always by key words.

Nothing specific right now. I'm bookmarking them i my browser once I have the most useful ones for the new members at that particular moment. Thanks for your fast reply
