    Default How to

    Yes. Thanks 5jj, I see.
    I can use "how to use" ... so Why cannot I use " when to..." ?

    I have moved this to start a separate thread.

    We don't start questions with "How to ..." either.

    How to ask for directions?
    How should I ask for directions?
    How can I ask for directions?
    How do we ask for directions?


    When to use "may" or "might"?
    When should I use "may" and "might"?
    When do we use "may" and "might"?

    Thanks.
    I can't use "How to" and "When to" as a question ?
    I need to know how to play the game: Correct
    How to play the game ? : Incorrect
    I need to know when to play the game: Correct
    When to play the game ? : Incorrect

    Is that right?
