Default New (novice) user question

I have just registered as a user. Alas, I cant see the button for new thread at the top left hand corner. Am I not allowed to post questions, or Is there something else I have missed or what.

Since you created this thread, you should be able to create new threads in any other sub-forums. Did you get any error messages?

Thank you for the reply.
On joining MS Office Forum I was informed that a button labelled "New Threads" is located at the top left hand corner immediately below the word "User CP" however, no such button exist on my screen.
When replying to this thread I notice that I am listed as "New (novice) user question",
is that relevant.
I have attached a screen dump of the screen concerned.

Since what you have displayed is a search result and you're no longer in any particular forum, you can't expect to start a new thread there. Clearly, though, you were able to find the "New Threads" button in order to start this one...

Thank you for the reply Macropod
My first request was done in the "contact us" box.
What I really need to know is where I find the "start new Thread" button

You'll find it at the top of any of this site's forums.
