Clicking on a date under 'Test Results will again take you to the 'Recommended Fixes' screen for that test. Note that "&report=Summary" has been added after the conid number in these results. This will need to be removed to display your test results through the Tech Express link in your profile.

Highlight and copy the URL for the "Recommended Fixes" page for the test results you wish to display. If you want to share your results in an email or on the forum, simply paste the URL in your email or post and you are done.

If you want to add your test results to your TechExpress link in your profile, highlight and copy the URL from the "Recommended Fixes" page for the test results you want to display. Then go to the PC Pitstop forum, click on "My Controls" at the top right of the forum, then on "Edit Profile Info", in the section labeled "Personal Profile". Paste the URL into the TechExpress Link field, removing "&report=Summary", if necessary. That's all there is to it.
