    This thread will serve as the OFFICIAL thread for all of my How-To tutorials for everything CAPTIVATE. Keep an eye out as I'm developing new videos on a daily basis. This will just be known as the central repository for all video tutorial links. Please post requests you'd like to see as well and if I'm capable, I'll create them.

    SIDE NOTE: There are many different ways and methods to do a number of the steps in my videos. I know this. I am illustrating what I feel is the easiest and most simplistic way to perform the steps to achieve the goal at hand. Constructive criticism is appreciated but remember, the target audience is a user who has no clue about how to complete the solution. Filler is included along with detailed info about steps to educate the user as well as instruct he or she.

    Please consider donating as all of my work is non-profit and I do it for XDA and Android enthusiasts alike. I would have greatly appreciated these videos when I was a newbie and I'm sure you will to. Donation link is in the bottom of this post ;).

    Just some feedback: not really accurate to refer to what you're doing in that video as going to "high resolution" or increasing the resolution. That's really misleading and is going to confuse users (not to mention that it corrupts the true definition of the term which is frustrating to us IT support people... like users who call their hard drive "RAM"). The resolution doesn't change. You're just zooming out.

    Thanks a lot! This will definitely help all of the people like me who learn better when they see it done, and not just by reading about it.

    I responded to this on the YouTube comments. I made attempts to say look and feel after anytime I said resolution. I realize a couple of times I said it was the definition or high resolution. I was merely trying to simplify the words I was using and threw that in on the fly. I understand what is going on in reality. Thanks for your info though... :). I see by your sig you are quite the grammar/technical writing/speaking nazi... :).

    FWIW I'm a Systems Administrator for a local company in Central Texas and I too have pet peeves for people incorrectly defining things. Just last week I had an employee send a COMPANY WIDE email recommending users upgrade an entire service pack for a certain symptom. The symptom? If your computer is running slow. Every non-it person thinks their pc is slow. Needless to say, it was very frustrating. The user was told to never send employee wide emails regarding his tech tips again.
