Shindaiwa Chainsaw

Shindaiwa 446s Chain adjustment?

Hi. I have a Shindaiwa 446s Chainsaw and I was wondering how I can adjust the chain. I typically can either raise, lower or slightly pull out on the bar as the chain stretches.... but they seem to stretch past the point of me being able to use them on the saw. I keep a very close eye on the chain lube too. I took one of my chains in for sharpening and asked him to take out a link but now I cant fit it on the saw as it is just slightly to short. Am I missing something simple on the chainsaw that would allow me to adjust more accurately? I am "relatively" new to chainsaw usage... but not that much. =) How long does a bar typically last? I bought the saw this winter and I have the same bar. I have used about 8 chains from sharp to dull in total on the bar.
I noticed a "nut" under the cover but no way to adjust it. Is the adjusting screw in the "front" of the chainsaw? Flat head screwdriver screw?

Have you tried turning the adjusting screw that should be right there next to the bar?
