I believe I am one of Mark Twain's imbeciles. I have done as you suggested.
The 'Data Diretory' contains a movie that I am uploading but do not intend to
keep. It is not for me, but I always return what I borrow.
In any event, I have a download list of approximately 6 movies, none of which
will install in the torrent package. I even installed a second Torrent
Application 'Deluge' to see if that might work. So I now have Deluge and
I seem to remember sending you a print-screen of my desktop which has the page
that lists them. I can resend if you like, however, if I double-click on any
of those in the list they 'do not' install in the Torrent Application.
Neither can I drag and drop them. I have attempted so many reconfigurations
that I no longer can remember the original that worked.
I have another post relating to 'find' and 'locate' objectives, that was posted
partially due to the problem I am having here. I thought if I could fine the
folder that contains the list of downloaded Torrents that appear in a window
on my desktop, I could perhaps locate and enter that folder and attempt
double-clicking from there.
I am sure your advice works fine most of the time, and I have done something
that makes my situation different, but if you are willing to add any new ideas,
I would appreciate it.
