How do I transfer purchases from one computer to another

by mcwilljg / May 14, 2010 11:33 AM PDT

I purchased an audiobook on my office computer, but I use my home computer to sync with my iPhone. Now I can't download the book to my home computer without having to pay again AND I can't sync with the office computer without erasing all of the info and apps from my home computer. ITunes considers my home computer as the master library. I didn't know all of this and, quite frankly, don't understand why it has to be this way. Can anyone suggest a solution?

Purchased tracks,

can be played on up to 5 different computers.

I assume you used the same account to purchase the audiobook.

Transfer the audiobook to a thumbdrive and take it home.

Insert the thumb drive and import the audiobook to the library.

How does that work out for you?

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?
