    I don't understand the listing order of "Normal Threads". The first page of this forum shows posts from last month and even last year. Does that mean that almost no one uses this forum? Or, that they are listed by something other than posting date? If so, can I set an option to show the most recent posts? Thanks.

    Welcome to the forums, adkr. :)

    Most recent threads appear first, just like in any other section of windows7forums. Feel free to post your question or suggest a discussion.

    As cybercore points out when viewing a forum 'category' then most recent threads or posts appear at the top. Some categories are used more than others like 'Windows 7 support' for example others, whilst still used, may have posts or threads dating further back as use is less frequent.

    Oh and welcome to the forum... :)

    Cybercore and Kemical, thanks for the information. I learn more on forums than anywhere else.
