It is my sons comp but I need the photos in it as they are from when he was a baby and I don't want to lose them. I know some comp things but I need it in plain language even me as a dummy can understand. I so don't want to restore it. I lose the pics I know.
Thank you in advance for any and all help.
I am out of ideas. It will not leave that screen at all. I don't wish to lose the photos in it. Any and all help appreciated.
