- Tutorial Help
In the Tutorials wherever Click is used, this means to move the mouse cursor or arrow over the object to be "clicked" on then use the Left Mouse button, right click is the Right Mouse button instead.
To Stop a Project, if it won't End automatically, click on the Blue Box buttom, like a Stereo's Stop Button, and Click on this button, to run a project, click the "Play" or Run Button.
When a Project File, or Source Code File has been downloaded, open it in your unzip application, and unzip it to a folder, for example in a folder under My Documents like Tutorials, this can be done using the right click option and extract (Windows 98 or later) or a third-party .ZIP compatible application - just search on the internet for one if you cannot open .ZIP files.
Using Windows Explorer or Windows Run go to the folder you "extracted" the tutorial and then open the HTML or VBP file contained within this folder, it is recommened that you keep each tutorial in its own folder such as Hello World or Tutorial1 etc.
