    Welcome to the forum.

    It is the same as "useless" (adjective).

    Note my amendments to your post. Remember the rules of written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single, appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Do not put a space before a full stop, comma, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a full stop, comma, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Enclose words you are querying inside quotation marks "like this" or put them in italics like this.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    You will notice that rule #2 on the list I gave was "End every sentence with a single, appropriate punctuation mark". Even a sentence as short as "Thanks" or "Thank you" requires a final punctuation mark.

    Note that "u" is not a word. It's "you". Please use only full, standard English words on the forum.

    In addition, there is no need to write a new post to say thank you to anyone. In the bottom left-hand corner of every post is a "Thanks" button. Click that to say thank you.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
