Click on engine-switch off. Then click on file-new-position setup-
reset- side to move: white.

Always make sure engine is off so you can move the ppieces at will.
There may be other ways to do what you want but that's the way I do it.

Thanks for your response.. but when I am reviewing games I like to leave
"Infinite Analysis" turned on.
I think I uesd to do this before... but I cannot remember how. I think there
is a menu where you can decide on the behavior when you finish a game and
starting a new one... but I cannot find it. I wonder if this has something
to do with the game level that is set.??

Now that's a different question that you didn't ask. Just click on the
microscope on the tool bar. You've got to play with all the functions
to really get to know them.

I know how to use Infinite Analysis!! I meant that because I use Infinite
Analysis I need the engine on. I do not want to turn the engine off.

It is hard to interpret your question unambiguously.
Are you looking for &Game &Options "Flip board on New Game" ?

When I click on New Game the game is reset to the starting position and the
computer immediately plays 1. d4 , for example.
I want the change the behavior to where the game is reset to the starting
position but no move is played immediately.

Thanks.

What I suggest will do what you want half of the time.
