how to effectively find help online.

<h2 id="due_diligence">First of all - due diligence</h2>

<p>
The first thing to do when running into a problem, is try to find the
answer yourself. You can try consulting the documentation of the program
, especially its <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FAQ">“FAQ” - the
so-called “Frequently Asked Questions”</a> document (assuming it exists),
or use a web search engine. Some recommended search engines are:

<a href="https://duckduckgo.com/">DuckDuckGo</a>
</p>

<a href="https://www.google.com/">Google Web Search</a>
