    Do you mean the Photo Viewer that looks like a couple of Triangles in a Square?

    If so Click on it and all your photos should come up on the Screen, if not Click on Collection or Albums on the left hand side.

    Then your Photos should come up on the Screen.

    Then on the Task Bar at the Top there are Three Symbols, one that looks like a Circle with Arrows going round, while the one next to it looks like a Four Rung Ladder.

    That's the one you want to Click on.

    At this Point all the Photos will have a Black Square in the Corner.

    Click on the Photo or Photos you want to Select and these Selected Photos will then have a Frame around them, with a tick in the Corner.

    Then when you look at the Top Taskbar, the Symbol that looked like a Four Rung Ladder, now looks like Two Sheets of Paper, one on top of the Other.

    This is the Copy Button.

    Click on it: and this will copy your Selected Photo/s although you won't see anything happening.

    Then go to File Explorer and find My Photos and find the Folder you want to Copy them in, or Create a New Folder and Re-Name it to whatever you want to call it.

    Then hover the Mouse over this Folder, then Right Click the Mouse and Click: Paste from the Drop Down Menu and your Selected Photo should Paste in.

    Just do one photo to Start with, till you get the hang of what you are doing.

    Next time you take some photos, you could do it this way.

    Plug your Camera in Via USB

    Start>Windows System>Scroll Down to 'This PC' >Click This PC

    You should see your Camera (or rather the SD Card in your Camera) Listed as Removable Disk (G)

    Click on the Symbol that represents Disk (G)

    DCIM Comes Up

    Click on DCIM

    100 SS CAM Comes Up

    Click on 100 SS CAM and all your pictures should appear in a listed View.

    Click on the Tiny Thumbnail Bottom Right

    And this listed View will then turn into Thumbnails or Click the Icon Next to it to go back to listed View

    You can just Toggle between them if you want.

    You can also Change the Size of the Thumbnails you are looking at in View (so you can see what you've got)

    Then After you've looked at the Thumbnails, you can Drag and Drop them (one of them, some of them, or all of them) into one of the Folders on the Left ie Pictures or else Create a New Folder and give it what Title you want and then put that in Pictures or wherever you choose.

    Hi Simon

    Thank you for those kind words but just a couple of days ago I knew nothing, so it ought to be me who's thanking you for the chance to practice what I'm doing (Steep learning Curve!)

    What I am lacking in Technical Skill (which is a lot at the moment!) I try to make up for by trying to explain things in a way that mere mortals like me, can hopefully understand.
