Okay I have a W7 laptop with quite a few photos on it and want to transfer them to my new W8.1 laptop. What would be the best and easiest way to achieve this task...Thanks for any help with this.

Hi Beel :)

To be honest, there's a few ways you could go about it. You store the picture on an online storage service, such as Drobox, OneDrive (Microsoft), Google Drive, etc. and then access that storage from the other computer and download them here. You could move the photos using an external storage media, such as an external HDD or USB flash drive. You could create a shared folder on your Windows 7 laptop, store all the pictures in it then access that shared folder on your Windows 8.1 laptop and grab them from there, etc. There's a lot of possibilities, all of them are quite easy to do.
