Yes, the fuse is only there to protect the meter from being overloaded with amps.  Amperes are measured in the line of the circuit whereas volts are measured ACROSS the circuit. The continuity function of the multi meter should also still be working even with a blown fuse.

Keep plugging away and don't let it get you down, you'll certainly learn a lot from this little experience!  ;)

Make sure you have got the leads in the right place on your multimeter or you will definitely blow the fuse

You looking for the lowest amperage, that's when the alignment is best.
