– Your Archive will live on your Desktop until you either move it or delete it.

– To go back to another folder, press the back arrow at the top near the search bar.
– To open JPEGs, go to the photo you want to view and either double click or right click and press Preview. The thumbnail versions in your folder are only previews and are not the full photo. You have to double click into the photo to see the entire thing.

How to know how much space you have on your computer

– Open the Start Menu and click Computer.
– Under Hard Disk Drives, right click with your mouse on the C or any of the drives under that section, then click Properties.
