The following question is in reference to [Ticket************] I have Potostory 2015. I bought a new dell laptop that does not have a DVD option. It has Windows 10. I always burned my Photostory slide shows to a DVD. If I buy the latest version of Photostory, please tell me what I will need to do that is akin to burning my slideshows onto a DVD. Thanks

Since this is a user to user forum and not a contact for Magix Support I have removed your support ticket number since it is, essentially, personal to you and so should not be posted to a public forum.

You can output to a file format, like mp4, that will be playable on most, if not all, computers and many televisions.

However, why not consider purchasing an external USB DVD-Rewriter, connect it to your new computer (Photo Story should see it as a disc writer) and continue to burn DVDs as before? Such writers are now remarkably cheap.
