you are at ease with what you do, but a usual ,all you don't think step by step and for others who are trying to do what you say. where is the code ???  you know the one to enter on the note pad?? and you need to tell people to put the code as a (,bet file) or ya cant save it and be useful.

Read the description of the video next time (it even says "Command Used In Video"), and I also put it on the screen if you would rather type it out on a different computer. This is a two-step tutorial. I can not make it any simpler.
