Figured it out while you were replying and started my thread. Thanks for your attempt to help though.
When I clicked the Internal Drives link, it took me to the page that had 2 sections: “Community” with a couple of items and “Latest Posts” with about a half-dozen items. There is no New Message button on this page.
Underneath the “Latest Posts” is a “View All” link. When I clicked on this to see if there were any threads that might address my situation, I got a full page of threads but this too did not have the New Message button. This was where I was getting stuck.
Since my previous post, I backed up and selected one of the items under “Community”. Surprise: I got a page of threads AND the New Message button. My suggestion to avoid future discussion on this topic is that on the category’s home page to add a note at the bottom of the “Community” section stating:
“Click on one of the forums above to review threads in that forum and to start a new thread if necessary”
