    how does one move files from disc to pictures? I open the disc, and unlike
    windows 2000 which gives you a choice to move pics anywhere, vista does not.

    Do you mean that you can't select the pictures (or a folder that contains
    them) and copy & paste them to folder on your hard drive? Or are you trying
    to do something else?

    Start - Computer

    go to your disc (probably CD or DVD?)
    right-click on the folder, select "Copy"

    In the Navigation panel (left side)
    click on the arrow beside your user name
    you should see several folders under your username
    right-click on "Pictures", select "Paste"

    Vista doesn't come with the "Copy to Folder" and "Move to Folder" options on
    the right-click menu, but you can add them. however, some people advise
    against it.

  4. When you say "disc," do you mean a CD?

    If so, you can't move files from a read-only medium like a CD. But you
    can certainly copy them.

    You can turn on the "Copy to Folder" and "Move to Folder" context menu
    options using this tutorial:
