Thank you so much for all of your time and patience.I can now open my backup genealogy files.Copyng from the disc to the desktop before opening did the trick.
We all have seen movies where someone in a control tower helps a passenger land a jet, or television shows where an expertgives instructions to a perspiring soul with just seconds left to defuse a bomb.Well, in the future, whenever I see one, I will think of this experience. :-)
I still am not sure I found Windows Explorer, although I did find "Explore" when I right clicked on "Start."But I did achieve my goal.I know how to save my genealogical research to disc and open it, which is quite an accomplishment for me.The credit goes to you both.
Ah, and there are still more mountains to climb.I now have to work on learning how to create a pdf file, Trevor.As Scarlett said, "Tomorrow is another day."
