Question about Garden
The bar is usually clamped with two hex nuts, you usually need to remove them, this allows the chain cover to come away, then wind back the tension adjusting screw ( with a flat blade screwdriver on a Husqvana other brands may be different ) back until the chain is loose enough to come off, the bar will also come off at this point.
It is a good opportunity to give everything a good clean at this stage and make sure the oil ways to the bar are clean and not blocked with wood dust, check the nose wheel on the bar spins freely and maybe grease it.
Put the new chain over the drive pulley the same way as the old chain came off, line it up in the bar slot and if you have the tension adjust wound back far enough for a new chain the bar will just flop over the two clamp bolts, replace the cover, and just do the nuts up finger tight so the tension adjust can be wound up to take the slack out of the chain.... not too tight ! it should still spin by hand without too much friction and you should be able to lift a link up half way out of the slot in the middle of the bar with your fingers.
Check the oil is getting to the chain by running at full speed with the end of the bar held just above a flat piece of clean wood, it should throw off a faint line of oil from the chain onto the wood.
Keep your chain sharp...
Happy sawing !

The side plate on most chainsaws will be held on by two nuts. Loosen the blade adjustment screw (a pin that is usually driven by a screw and pushes the blade out from the chainsaw to keep the chain tension tight).
The old chain is ready to be removed now that the sprocket plate is off of the saw. Pull the nose of the chainsaw's bar away from the chainsaw to release it from the tensioner.
Remove the old chainsaw chain.
The chain will easily remove from the guide bar with all that slack in it. Note the orientation of the cutting edges of the chain so you put the new one on the same way.
Pull the drive links out of the guide bar and slip the other end of the chain around the clutch drum.
Carefully thread your new or recently sharpened chainsaw chain around the chainsaw's clutch drum, making sure that the drive links engage in the sprocket.
Thread the rest of the drive links into the guide bar and around its nose, making sure all links are in the guide bar slot.
With the chain properly threaded along the clutch drum and guide bar, put some tension into it by pulling on the nose of the guide bar away from the chainsaw.
While pulling the guide bar, make sure to seat it onto the saw's adjustment pin.
Replace the side plate.
The side plate is ready to go back on as long as the guide bar is properly positioned beneath.
Replace the plate and the nuts that hold it into position, but do not tighten the nuts down all the way yet. The guide bar must be allowed to move a little while the chain is tightened to the correct tension.
Finish tightening the side plate nuts.
The chainsaw chain replacement is now complete.
