Mary has a question about photos in Windows 10:  “We’ve purchased a new computer with Windows 10 already installed in it. We figured out how to put pictures in the Photos Collection, but can’t figure out how to print those pictures. Please help.”

Glad to help, Mary. It’s pretty easy to print from the Photos app in Windows 10.  First, tap on the Photos app icon to open or click on any of your photographs in the Pictures file of your library.
