I  made a big mistake and downloaded Windows10. I don’t know how to retrieve my photos from the computer. One the Windows 7 site, it was easy. Hopefully I will figure this out and be able to send pictures of the kids for the holiday. Any thoughts????

        IDK I clicked where it said upgrade and it told me I had 30 days to go back to 7. I clicked and within minutes all was as is. If not goggle how to get back cause you can.

    Go into ‘Desktop’ mode. There should be a ’tile’ that shows it, usually in the bottom left. Click on it. It should look just like your Windows 7. Everything should be the same. The file folder on the bottom toolbar should grant you ‘Quick Access’ to all your files. I have Windows 10 but don’t have a touchscreen, so I only use the desktop mode. If the file icon isn’t on your toolbar, right click the windows icon in the bottom left corner. Then click ‘File Explorer’ and that should give you the same access. I hope that helps.

      You are one smart lady Miss Ruby. It originally only showed the last two sets of pictures that I downloaded. The older we get, the more resistant to change.

    I only use Windows when forced (I use Linux). How did you access your photos before? It supposedly didn’t change. If I knew what you did before, I can point you in the right direction.

      It was easy before. I just clicked on the lower left and everything came up. I clicked on my computer and it was easy to get to pictures. Ruby the Airedale helped a great deal.

    Microsoft has moved to the dark side. Mommy never wanted Apple products but after this Windows 10 debacle (do you like my new word?) she will suffer through learning their products when the time comes. It is just wrong to have to trick people into upgrading and then messing up their computers, or making it so people can’t find what is there. OK, she said I can stop ranting for her now. Good luck.

      Rant away. They have been bothering me for months on end. I thought that I had cancelled to download and in the middle of buying something, the screen went black. The download began 15 hours after they said that it would happen and I thought that I was in the clear. A word about Apple. I have 2 nanos. A 8 and a 16. I download a lot of books to listen on my walks. Apple changes the rules all of the time. I have to relearn it constantly.

    Best of luck on getting your photos back. There must be someone that can assist you on this. Makes one kinda ‘grumpy’ when this type of thing happens !! =/
