H-Adaptive Results -- More Detail in Linear Static Simulations?

I'm running SW Premium 2015 SP 4.0, so I don't have access to a lot of the fancy simulation-analysis tools.  After an H-Adaptive simulation has completed, if and only if it satisfies the specified accuracy criterion, I do get a pop-up telling me the final value of that variable.  (I if the criterion was not met, apparently I get nothing but the new plots.)  But (assuming I wasn't watching it the whole time):
1) How do I find out how many loops were run?

2) How do I get details on the mesh, such as what was the smallest element size?  (I see that I can view an image of the mesh in Mesh/Show Mesh.)

3) How do I save the mesh if I want to use it in another simulation?  (I see that I can re-use it as the starting point of the same simulation if I increase the accuracy criterion.)

4) If the specified accuracy criterion was not met, how do I find the final value of that variable?

The only other pieces of information I've found are the number of nodes (or DOF) and the run time of the final loop in Results/Solver Messages.  I'm hoping there's more somewhere! -- John Willett
