  12. Thank you so much! can't tell you how much this helped. Thumbs up for me!

  14. Shouldn't take you a minute and 30 seconds to start to show us how. Obviously we need help canceling the print job, stop giving us useless information. Also, WHY move the screen so much like at 1:47 and on? Erratic movement is so frustrating to follow. Not only do you randomly move your screen but your mouse too. Good information but terrible presentation of it. You can take this as constructive criticism for your future projects or get mad and emotional.

  15. Thankyou so so so much !!!!!! ????

  16. OMG thank you so much my printer was frozen for soooo long and wouldn't print anything even if I would let all of the documents print (saved me so much on inc)
