How to apply pre-made sheetrock inside corners?

We are remodeling a house and I usually use use paper to do all the inside corners. My wife brought home some premade inside corners that have a metal 90 degree bend and then a paper flange. How do you install them, do you staple/nail them to the wall or mud the corner first then press down in.

I would like to try them since she bought them and they may be faster if I can figure out the best way to install them.

Thanks,
Bob

I have had success gluing them on. Use a spray contact adhesive. Spray both the corner and the drywall, let it set a minute then apply the piece to the wall. Then simply mud the corner in as usual.

Badeyeben,

Thanks for the tip. I tried it and it worked great. Just had to make sure it's lined up when first put on or you have a heck of a time moving it.
