Once you get those documents and photos backed up in the cloud, how do you move them somewhere else?   That’s what a reader wanted to know: “I have pictures for insurance purposes on one drive,saved from my cell phone.  how do I get them onto my computer hard drive so I can put them on a thumb drive? I’m running Windows 10.”

If you’re running Windows 10, this is pretty easy.  Click the icon to open File Explorer.

Then select the folders.  In this case, you’ll want to choose Pictures.  Now, your photos will save both in the cloud and on the hard drive of your PC.
