That's easy, in principle. The pics aren't in Picasa. They are just on your hard drive. So copy them to the new PC (like all your other data, like documents and music and movies and favorites) and bring them in into Picasa just like you did on this PC.

There might even be smarter ways such as exporting and importing the library, but that means that you would have to copy the pics to exactly the same location on your new PC as they are on your old one. is the help for the program.

Is easy transfer and you can transfer all you file and folders in one operation.
I picked up a Belkin easy transfer cable from Bestbuy for $34.99 and have used it many times without any problems. I am sure most computer stores have that one or another brand.
If your old computer has Windows XP you will have to download and install the easy transfer program from Microsoft.... Windows 7 already has it built in.
It is very easy and pretty much leads you through the whole process.

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?
