    What I need is a numerical list
    1 Start 2,……3, etc It is handy to have the explanations as to what is involved, but one can search high and low under Windows 8.1 through the headings – installation, Add, Etc for a specific guide, particularly if unfamiliar or getting on in years as I am. Makes me feel I am dumb~
