  Hi All

  * Okay, let's try it again.
  I was looking at an old CFG file, and so I found a newer one, and I found:
  start in screen: files

  So you will need to replace the word "files" with something else, like menus or settings.
  One good way to do this is to just change it in the menus, back to "settings", or whatever it is refered to in the settings.
  Then you could save a CFG file from the menus, and open it in Notepad, and see what it has been changed to, for future reference.

  Hi Glenn

  I was trying to be a bit too clever and was editing the cfg file directly and changing the word root for settings which is what the option is called when you set it through the settings menus but this was not working. I took your advice and changed the settings and then saved a config file and opened it in notepad and the line finished with the word menu not settings which is a bit odd as it is called settings when it is set but never mind job done now and thanks for your help.


  I thought this would be the place to set up what I am looking for but when I change this from root to settings my Nano still starts up in the regular start menu on the files option. Is that line what I am looking for or is that line used for something completely different. If settings is not the right thing to replace root with then could someone please let me know what I need to put in there. Ideally I would love it to start up in the manage settings options but if I can just get into settings I would be happy.

  One more bit of info:
  In my last post, which I notoriously replied to myself, I wrote to use an equals sign.
  I took a closer look at mine, and there is not an equals sign, but a colon, then a space, then you will want to put a "no" after the space on the mentioned statement, without the quotes of course.
