Default Want New Assignment

I've been trying to get a new assignment because I started thinking a 100,000,000 prime would be fast to find (didn't know much about how long they took) now that I know more I would like to change what my computer is doing but I have no clue how to do it on my mac.

Please help!

Don't panic.
Open the screen for Prime95 (if you are running mprime or some other program, tell us which).
Change your work preference in the menus. (Test, Work windows)
After that, go to the advanced menu select, Unreserve Exponent.
When presented with the box, type in the number that you are currently working on.

The machine should unreserve it and get new work of the type you selected.
