"First of all I wish to ask this question. If it is easier with a graphical program then why don't they explain this tip/solution with the graphical program. Wait, I will answer that question myself. It is a lot easier to explain the tip/solution in a textual manner than to describe a program window or provide screen shots.

"Secondly, it is my personal opinion that, most times doing simple stuff is a lot easier and faster through the console, than it is via a point and clicky, search and fumble method. I do mean the search and fumble too. If you have ever supported people who are not proficient in computers they do, even on programs they use every day, search and fumble around the graphical user interface. To have them do the same thing on a program they rarely, if ever, use is almost impossible."
