Question about Garden
Ben is spot on with his answer and the only thing I'd add to his comment is to suggest supporting the tip of the guide bar on a short piece of 2x4 on edge or a 4x4 while the exercise is done. If the bar bolts are tightened with the bar tip in the lowered position, the normal use of the saw could cause the chain to loosen a bit more quickly because there is space for the bar to slip upward due to down pressure while you cutting wood.
Tightening the bar bolts with the tip in the up position eliminates that little bit of space for the bar to slide upwards becase its there already. The result is a tighter chain for a longer period.

Well it kinda depends on the saw you have. But either way you have to losen the bolts on the side of the saw by the bar and look for a flat head screw either between them bolts or at the front of the saw, some were beside the bar and chain. turn till chain is tight but not to tight and then tighten side bolts. Now if you have an older saw the do the same thing with the bolts only on the bar there should be a slot for a flat head screw driver just turn till chain is tight and tighten the bolts back up...

All the saws I use that do not need the cover removed to tighten the chain. If the tightening parts are in the cover you can't adjust the tension with the cover off Other saws the pin is on the saw side To tighten the chain there is a pin that fits into a hole on the bar. Turn the adjusting device to move the bar forward to tighten the chain. If you get it too tight it will not move.
