Commas with dependent clauses

When starting a sentence with a dependent clause, use a comma after it.

Example: If you can’t find what you are looking for, let me know.

But a comma is often unnecessary when the sentence starts with an independent clause followed by a dependent clause.

Example: Let me know if you can’t find what you are looking for.
