Thanks for letting me know the links are ok. I'm always curious if I send people to the wrong post on the forums, so I try to remember to include the post # too.
Try a 'copy shortcut' on https://www.sevenforums.com/showthread.php?p=2929772
- this link uses the [post]2929772[/post] tags.
Note the page reference just before .html in the code box below that represents a 'copy shortcut' for me.
(mine is -3.html, yours will probably be -6.html). The -# is the page number.
This is what would be posted if I didn't 'adjust' what 'copy short' gives me. Does the link below take you to your post #114?
Need help with windows 8 clean install on retail pc.
It's because I have 'posts per page' set to 40 and the default is 20. It just makes it easier for me to navigate threads (less page turning
