If you haven't a program for downloading images together with a cable that attaches to the camera, then your only option is to buy a USB memory card reader.
Then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into the USB memory card reader, then plug the cable from the memory card reader into the computer's USB port. The computer will see this as memory card device, then open the folders on the memory card and copy the image files to your computer.
I suggest you create a folder specifically to store your photos.

It all depends, first you would plug the camera into the computer with the usb cable that should have come with the camera. This is where things start to differ. Some cameras are recognized and installed automatically when they're plugged in so you would just run through the wizard that pops up and then the camera would appear in the Control Panel under Printers and Other Hardware and then under Scanners and Cameras. Sometimes it will also show up in my computer at the bottom. That's the easy way. If that doesn't work for your camera then you'll likely have to install the software that came on a cd with your camera and use that to get the pictures off. That's a bit harder.
