>What do you do to check-boxes? Check/uncheck them? Or click them on/off.

The MS Windows 95 glossaries give the following examples:

"To add or remove a component, CLICK the check box. A shaded box means that
only part of the component will be installed. To see what's included in a
component, click Details."

"TrueType fonts are disabled.\n\nTo use TrueType fonts, SELECT the Enable
TrueType Fonts check box in the TrueType dialog box, and then restart
Windows before installing TrueType fonts."

You can download the glossaries from the MS FTP site.
