I have now got my Windows laptop back and installed Paint.  Is there a user guide for it?

It was the main battery.  It wouldn't boot with the old battery in but worked OK without it.  I would have tried that if it was like my old Toshiba, where the battery just unclipped, but the newer one has the battery inside and you have to remove the back and I wasn't confident in doing that.

This laptop (Windows 10) has the onscreen keyboard pop up on the first screen and then on the screen after you boot and at random other times.  I used it on my old laptop (Windows 7) when I needed to get a new keyboard.   When I dot this laptop I used the same MS login and password as my previous one and the OS KB migrated to this, and I can't work out how to get rid of it.  Any Ideas?

Is there any way we can see the latest posts, Patrick, without ploughing through all the lists?
