Customer Question
Hello Andy, I have...

Hello Andy, I have a question. I had been using Picasa for several years and I have not been on my laptop for several months now. I just went into Picasa to find my pictures and none of them are there! How can I retrieve these photos? Tons of photos I do not have copies of!! Help Please.

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand/model and Operating System (OS) of your laptop?

Windows 10 Hp

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your HP? Have you installed any updates recently?

Did not know what to do honestly. I didn't want to do anything that wasn't correct. I didn't want to lose anymore photos that what i have so far!

Technician's Assistant: The Laptop Technician will be able to walk you through that. Anything else you want the computer expert to know before I connect you?

No, just that once in awhile when i turn my laptop on my task bar doesn't show up, so i would like to try and be able to logon without a password ***** to the login
