transfer to new PC ?

Recommended Posts

HI everyone ..

Hubby has an old XP

Bought a new DELL will get it in a few day..

I downloaded all his pics and favourites and email addresses to a flashdrive etc.

Me thinks the rest of the stuff is too old to backup on his new puter.

He has a Jimmy Buffett screen Saver he would like to transfer it to his new DELL

Where he dowloaded it from years back is shut down 'I googled it but no luck any ideas

if it can be found Please and Thank you.

CHEERS

Audrey if it is on his computer, you should be able to copy it, this time right click and select copy and put it on your desktop or flashdrive.

Webshots was just that, allowed downloading from their site. I haven't seen it around in quite some time.

If you have them on a flash drive see if they'll open with some image program like Irfanview or even MS Paint.

It looks like the second one will be some image(s).

There is another way: download all the Buffet pics you can find, putting them all in a folder....call it Pics, or whatever you wish. RIght-click on the desktop, choose Personalize, Desktop Background, then Picture Location. Use the Browse button to locate the Pics folder. Once you do, choose all the pics in the folder - make sure the pics are all check-marked. Now, click on Change Picture Every: and pick the interval you want.....for a screensaver I'd go with 5-10 minutes, but it's a personal preference. Save the new theme by clicking on Save changes.

That's it :)
