Me to is not knowing that delete executing button proper innit.
I think that the problem most casual computers have is with the jargon.
For instance to me, normally, an email is the one I get from relatives, businesses and so on via Outlook, Outlook Express, or Windows Live Mail. To others it is another email setup such as gmail...and so on.
When in FR I know, and use, my mailbox, and would probably refer the mailbox contents as "Messages". I delete my FR messages by clicking the delete button to the right of the message in the inbox...this seems to get rid of the email, and I can do this one message at a time. I seldom have more than 6 messages in there before I start deleting. There is a button at the bottom of the inbox page labelled "delete" but i have not yet found a reason for using it, although it appears to be able to check and delete all messages at one click.
Maurice, no matter how clever I think I am with computers, nor how many folk I help, there is always something around the corner that I can learn.
In my early days an IT pro told me that the only way to learn about computers was to press buttons, and he was right....only trouble is that if your press the wrong button you lose lots of stuff...so press away, but with caution.
I fear the geek, even though he comes bearing gifs.
