New Guy Questions

OK, I have a rig on order and wonder where to start learning... What video's to watch, what groups to read, what to do next... Don't even know what questions to ask! Not new to Ham Radio, but new to this rig, a 6400M. I'm coming from an IC-7610 and have been around the bands awhile. (Started as a Novice in 1963)
All I want to do initially is just set up a normal rig, maybe some digital stuff but don't have much desire to do any remote control stuff, maybe later on.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
