Excerpt: "To say that you have mastered a skill, you can just use savoir + infinitif."

"How to get somewhere (how to go about doing something, by what means, etc) is a process. When a process is involved, you often add comment: savoir comment + infinitif."

What is the rule concerning the use of savoir and savoir comment for knowing how to do something. Sometimes savoir plus verb--savoir compter--sometimes savoir comment plus verb--savoir comment m'occuper d'adultes?
