    After reading the "guidelines for posting" I saw the suggestion to use the "search" forum before asking a question as we might find help there. OK, I would love to use the search forum, but where is it? I can't find anything that looks like a search forum. Most forums have a box labeled "search" where you type in your question or topic and many suggestions pop up. Where is that box on here?

    eh?
    Click the search box near the top right corner of the MR window, under the Alert flag.
    It looks like a small magnifying glass.
    A search box opens.
    Click the More... button, if you need to search with other settings.

    OK, got it. DeltaMac, you must be a young guy. At 66 years old, my eyes aren't what they used to be. I never even saw a magnifying glass and still had to look closely for it after you pointed it out. I was looking for a more tradition real box like other forums have. But now I know. Thanks.

    Nah, you young whippersnapper!
    I just turned 68, but I just spend way too much time on this site... :D
    Seems like they could put a label (actual text) there, without needing to mouse over the icon, but no, then the generic help to use "search", when you have to search for the place to search from. Kinda makes you spin in circles. A little...

    I agree that it's rather obscure.
    And I'm a "youngster" by 6-8 years!
