Unsure how to save hand pose

Hi.  I’m very new.  I have searched for this some, but keep finding either “saving a whole pose” or discussions about advanced stuff that I’m not ready to deal with.

What I am trying to do is save *just* the hand posing.  I spent time making it into a “grip” (or a fist, whatever) and don’t want to have to do that every time.

I select the hand, then choose file>save as>Pose preset…and it saves the whole pose.

If I select the hand, then look in the scene hierarchy and click on the arrow-with-a-checkmark beside everything *except* the hand (so only the hand and it’s children have the arrow-with-a-checkmark), it saves the whole pose.

What am I doing wrong?  I want just the hand saved so that I can pose another figure however I want, but then use the pose on the hand.  Is this possible?

Thanks!

That is done like this, here I did just the right hand and the pose only effects the hand not its location.

Thank you, sir!  You are a gentleman among scholars!  A pearl before swine!

I had the right-ish idea, but was doing it in the wrong place.

Thank you again!
