This page is overly long and poorly organized. Possible ideas for reorganizing:
+
#Sections have been reorganized, with several new subroups
* Split the Troubleshooting section off to a separate page
+
#Redundant questions have been consolidated
* More radically, put each section on a subpage and make the main FAQ page a table of contents to those pages
+
#Some outdated questions have been removed
* Create more subgroupings like the Graphics, Sound, and Networking sections; possibly Fonts and Input Devices
+
#Questions whose answers are now a link to the relevant section of the User's Guide:

I may create a separate page for warnings and error messages. If and when I do, I will link that section of the FAQ to it. --[[User:RosanneDiMesio|RosanneDiMesio]] ([[User talk:RosanneDiMesio|talk]]) 08:15, 29 February 2016 (CST)
