    Question How to describe a sequence of actions?

    Hi, Dear sir or madam:

    Could you please explain how to describe a sequence of actions in English when communicating with other people?
    For example, below is a guide of how to send eamil using Express.
    First, click the Express icon on your desktop, then the express starts up. then click on the 'Composing ' button, then a window with a blank text box displays. ......

    If it is a long sequence, lots of 'then' would be in the paragraphs. It is not good, right? and what tense should be used in this senario.
