    I'm sorry if that's a dumb question, I'm not to computer savy!:)

    I get tired ( and a little dizzy) having to scroll all the way down ton's of post's to see the most recent.

    I know there is a better way.:)

    I do everything the hard way.:)

    Thanks for the help.

    Someone here shared this awhile ago and I find it so useful.

    Next to the letters on your keyboard is a set of 6 keys. One of them says "End". Just press that key and it will take you to the last post.

    Claudia, I'm so glad you asked that question!

    And Pepper, I'm so glad you had the answer! That's going to save me a LOT of time scrolling down.

    This has long been a problem for me. In fact I quit even trying to read the really long lists of posts.

    I am so computer illiterate that I did not even think of asking the question. What a simple answer. I am going to use it tonight to see how it goes.

    It seems that many would benefit from learning this. I know that it has been helpful for me too.

    will show up, you still have to change pages and then hit end or get to last page of thread and hit end,I think? I'll have to test this theory out, wish I could remember lol.

    you have made my life a lot easier, thank you.

    I have major problem's with not being able to watch pages scroll, it makes me feel dizzy and nauseus.

    This is a big help.

    Thank you,
