Hello LarryHN. Thank you for your helpful comments.
Next time I am sitting in front of my laptop I will review the migrated photo information (time, date, etc.) again, now that I have the benefit of your explanation of what I should find, in mind. Reassuring thanks.
I suspect I carried out an unorthodox method of transfer and next time I open my laptop I will check and let you know what I did and you can tell me what I probably did wrong!
Maybe my wording about the instructions was a bit over the top. But as an octogenarian (well very nearly) it is bit frustrating to try to decide which of the several methods described were going to be right for my set up, and then to try to follow generic descriptions which don’t always match what I see on the screen becomes rather exasperating. Hence my comment.
With respect to your advice about needing to “go take some training classes“ I found that to be a trifle patronising.
Shame that you found it necessary to go that far!
Apart from that your assistance is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
