old hard drive

I just got a new computer and would like to use the old hard drive as a slave drive so that I can use Photoshop that I was using on the old computer. Can I just make it slave drive and use it or do I have to reinstall it on the new hard drive? thanks for the help....

All things being equal, set the jumper for slave and plug it in.

I was told by an IT person at work (this is my computer not a work computer) that I could not use the program on the old hard drive (photoshop) with out a reinstall because of the registary... Not real sure why or even what it means. So again, can I use the old drive as a slave drive and use PHOTOSHOP without reinstalling photoshop on the new drive. (main reason is when I first put on photoshop I had real problems and nothing worked - had to have help to get it to run, now that it is running I hate to start all over on a reinstall.)

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?
