Welcome to the board. The overwhelming majority here are patient and helpful. But don't let a harsh comment or two drive you away.

Re: learning your camera, most here espouse the philosophy, RTDM! Read the darn manual. And then do it again.

Take care.

Welcome to the hog pen, Al. Manuals are good but there are many, many videos on You Tube that will help you. You also can Google specifics for your camera like how to do this or that on a certain camera. Glad you're here!

RTDM! Many years ago, back in the days of Koda home, a friend with a lot of new, very expensive gear and many rolls of film went on a 10-day Safari in Kenya. He took hundreds of photos. Alas, he had not really learned how to use the camera. The film processing cost a couple hundred dollars. He ended up with maybe a dozen images, and they were not very good ones. When all else fails, read the instructions.
