Bug Description

This isn't a "bug" as such, but I'm told this is the place to suggest improvements.

Can you add text menus? Their absence makes it harder for a non-technical user like me.

I may have eventually figured out that hovering the cursor pops up a one- or two-word label on the icons, but I think icons should complement -- not replace -- text menus.

Who would have guessed that you restore a file by clicking the trash icon. Kind of like clicking Start to shut down a computer, maybe.

I was able to set up my backup system because I had technical support, but otherwise I would have had problems.

Hope this is useful and hope I'm in the right forum. And thanks very much for providing Back In Time.
