Question about Garden
Most saws I have used have a tensioning screw that engages the bar. Loosen the nuts holding the bar just enough so you can move the bar up and down. Turn the screw to snug up the chain. With gloves on you should be able to move the chain around the bar. If it does not move it is too tight

Did the cover crack? The adjusting screw is just a common metric screw; the nut has a special tang that engages one of the 2 large holes at the drive end of the bar. When reinstalling the bar and chain, the adjustment screw must be backed off a few turns so the the tang will readily drop into it's hole in the bar. Install the cover (new if old one cracked) and turn the nut(s) down finger tight. Turn the adjuster CW to tighten the chain so that the chain doesn't droop from the bar, but turns freely by hand. Tighten the cover nut(s) and recheck the chain again.
