How to post a game using a PGN file [A step by step guide for Chess.com dummies]

  • #21

    Help please.  When I do like the instruction says, get pgn, it just puts the game board into ICC Dasher.

    Can you change the file type to Notepad? Click on get Pgn, Open with, then choose Notepad from the dropdown list.

    As soon as I click get pgn, it takes board to dasher. No pgn. click play and it just makes 1st move e4 and can't do anymore.  However, I just deleted dasher a few minutes ago and then clicked get pgn and it put me in notepad and I got pgn file.  At least I'm to this first step which makes me happy because I'm not too computer savvy.  At least I got into notepad.  I'll try reloading dasher tomorrow and see what happens.  Thanks.

    Haha, this is a lot easier than painstakingly copying each move into the Game Editor in order to post a game or a diagram (which may or may not have been my usual method up till nowWink). Cheers. Really useful Smile
