DNS how to "configure forwarder for all other dns zones

This is a followup to a question by someone else.  The original question was "Slow response to internet access.  DNS request timed out."  The answer was "In the DNS snap-in on that server, configure the forwarder for 'All other DNS zones' to point to Google's internet facing DNS cluster '8.8.8.8'."   I am having the exact same issue as the original question.

Can someone please provide me with exact instructions on how I add this zone to my DNS server (I have a single server doing DNS - MS Server 2008 R2)?

Thanks,
Lew
