    How do you come back to page 1 after reading all of the pages of a topic? Do you have to go backwards numerically or is there an easier way?

    I read all of the "ugly fabric" thread and reversed back from 53 to 1. I feel like a jerkface, but I don't know how to do it.

    Thanks for any help you can give me.

    If the topic as several pages you will see the numbers either at the top right or bottom right. Click on the number one to go back to the first page.

    If I go back to page 1, then try to go to another topic, by using the reverse button, my computer goes back to the pages that I have missed.

    I'm doing something wrong.

    On topics with more than 15 pages... look at the bottom of the page, there is a box that you can type in the page number you want to go to :wink:

    The back button will take you back to the last page your were at . Try using the buttons on top of the page to get to other topics

    I always check in daily by using the 'Unread Topics' at the top of the page. I believe these are NEW topics.

    If I have time I check 'Recent Topics'. I believe these are older topics that people have responded to recently.

    Hope that helps. You have to ask questions to learn.

    Go to the top and click on home. Then you can pick a subject and go from there.

    Thank you! What a difference when you know what you're doing. I spent half of my time just trying to get untangled.

    Thank you all!

    I click on "Home", too.

    Don't ever feel stupid or illiterate re computer skills! I've asked a bunch of questions - everyone on this board is so great. There's always someone who will help.

    Believe me - it's a whole lot better when someone here answers a question instead of one of your grandchildren! I used to know more stuff than the kids - not any more!
