On my harddrive local disc I have dozens of DNG files that I cannot open does this mean that they are empty or do I need a special program to open them.

You can see in My Computer if they are empty (0 bytes) or not (>0 bytes).

http://filext.com/file-extension/dng mentions 2 possible sources:
File type: Digital Negative Format
Company: Adobe Systems Incorporated
and
Dungeon File (created by ID software)
Does this ring a bell?

In what folder are these files located?

Thanks for the reply, they are digitaL negitive files and say they have between 1450 and 1550 KB in each one, and I do not have any DNG files in my elements 6 because I delete them when I convert them to jpegs.

if you don't need them any more.

It won't harm to delete them to the recycle bin and see if anything goes wrong.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
