    Moving pictures from Windows Photo Gallery into a folder on my des

    I have downloaded my pictures from my camera to Windows Photo Gallery. I
    cannot figure out how to get them from there into a folder on my desktop. I
    can't even burn them to a CD from Windows Photo Gallery, it wants to first
    format my CD and then says it can't finish the format. I just need some way
    to move these pictures out of Windows Photo gallery so I can ultimately get
    them onto a CD, but I can't even find the path to where they are located.
    Please help!

    =======================================
    Your pictures are not *in* Windows Photo Gallery...
    it simply records the path to the location of the pictures.

    Open Windows Photo Gallery and right click one
    of the thumbnails for the pictures you are looking
    for...from the menu...choose...Properties....

    On the General tab at "Location" you will see the path
    to the folder the pictures are saved in. (Hint: you
    may not see the complete path unless you highlight
    the text by dragging your pointer across it from left
    to right)

    I just want to load some software via a cd and Photo Gallery thinks it needs to format the cd. Can't I just choose something else to manage photos? Just loaded Service Pack 1. Never had a problem installing software I own before.

    Try "Open File Destination" - this should take you to where they are
    (Pictures?) - then you should be able to move them where you want to.

    They are not in Photo Gallery. They are in a folder. By default the
    folder is "C:\Users\username\Pictures"

    For future reference you might want to create a new folder before you
    transfer pictures to your computer and then transfer them to the folder.

    I suggest you copy them to the folder so that if needed you still have
    the original on your memory card.
