    Punctuation and a role of the preposition "for" in the following sentence.

    Hello all! Could anyone help me figure out if the "for" is a preposition or conjunction in this sentence: "So you want to make sure that you are in a correct menu set for what it is you want to be able to use here."? And where should I have put punctuation marks like commas and periods?

    Re: Punctuation and a role of the preposition "for" in the following sentence.

    'For' is a preposition here. You don't need any commas, and you put one period at the end as usual (and as you have).
    You could possibly put a comma after 'so'.
