I recently retired my six-year-old desktop PC. Although I had upgraded its components over the years – things like more memory, a SSHD, and new graphics card – its CPU was original and could not handle the newer features of Photoshop and Premiere Elements adequately.
My old PC was loaded with a ton of software. Many of the programs I no longer need or use. As is the usual case, buying a new computer for me is an excellent opportunity to do some house cleaning.
Another major effort for me is transferring the over 100K photos and videos from my old computer. For me that means not only copying the photos/videos themselves, but also, the Photoshop Elements 2021 and Lightroom Classic catalogs. that went reasonably well. Cleanup of this task is still ongoing, because there are a lot of photos that I plan to delete as time goes on.
I have a Canon PIXMA P-100 printer. Reinstalling its driver and Canon’s Print Studio Pro gave me trouble. The documentation is good, but somehow I struggled to get it right.
So I wrote an AppTip Sheet for myself to document my steps. That is the subject of this post. Just maybe there may be someone out there who has had similar problems.
