What software terms or web terms seem to confuse you the most?
Ok, am I the only one on the face of the planet who struggled with the term "default" 25 years ago? I took a course in Word for Windows way back, and I was TOTALLY hung up on "default", thinking...(well, I don't know what I was thinking, but I didn't think it meant going back to the way the program was originally set up!) And now on a website builder I'm using, the word "Launch" throws me every time. It means in this case to "start" your session, not to launch the whole darn website you're building. My software husband has no problem with terms like these. What software terms trip you up?.
