Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.

For .hh and .cc files, I hope an Window expert will help you. For macros, the .mac extension in only a convention; it is not used internally by the G4 kernel. You can choose the extension name you wish.

You can do that with simple particle gun as well. See for example TestEm4 (in examples/extended/electromagnetic)
