I went to florida recently and took my laptop with me. every night i uploaded my pictures to my laptop and wiped the memory card clean. Is there a way that i can get some of my pictures back on the memory card to take them to a place to get them printed. or is there a better way? like a cd?

If you have a card reader, you can put them back on the memory card. But don't expect to view them with the camera. The photo processor (man/woman) can read them.

I prefer to burn them to a CD.
The photo processors can read CDs.
I had rather hand the man/woman a 25 cent CD than give him a $50 memory card.

You can upload the photos directly from your computer

for many photo printing services. Sam's Club, for example, will give you a CD which contains their software for doing the upload. Costco does not need software on your computer. You simply go to their web site and upload. Many of the camera chains like Ritz as well as many smaller shops also provide this ability.

Ask at your printing shop. If they don't offer the service, you can probably find someone else who does.

The best way is to try it and see. The answer is probably

yes. BTW, another advantage of uploading is that you only have to make one trip; that is when you go to pick up your prints.

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?
