My wife and I are retired and are just begining to learn and enjoy personal computers. We were unfortunately introduced to PCs in those heady days when corporations purchased and plunked new expensive IMB machines on everyone's desk and expected you to someone become proficient with no formal training provided. So we learned that which was necessary to do our basic work and very little more. It is only now that we are able to find the time to experiment and learn as we progress in this environment.
My question involves the purchase of a new notebook computer. My wife's old one eventually lost the screen view due to either a monitor failure or video card failure (or so we were told). Since we planned to purchase a new machine anyway. we did just that and she is quite happy with the machine. The only problem we've encountered is that there are some photos saved on the old machine (it works except for nothing coming up on the screen) and we would like to know if there is some easy way for us to copy or move them onto the new maching -- remembering that we are not yet technically conversant.
