  1. Albums dissappeared after resetting Photos app


    I have windows 10. I was using the Photos app trying to create an album, when every time I clicked "Create" the Photos app crashed. I went to the Photos App Settings and selected "Reset". The Reset says,"If the app isn't working right, we can try and repair it. THE APPS DATA WON"T BE AFFECTED". I clicked the "Reset" button. A check mark appeared next to Reset. I reopened the Photos app and all of my albums are gone. The pictures are in the folders or collection, but none of the albums I've created are there. I have no recent back up to restore from. The last back up was done in April 2018. How can I restore my lost albums?

    :)

    Why did the photos app auto-create a random photo album?

    The automatic album creation is a new feature:

    (Source: Microsoft documentation.) It didn't add all the photos taken on that date because it thought some were too similar to others:

    Date and time are definitely taken into account when grouping the photos; a CNET article suggests there might be more complex logic too:

    The location would be determined from information embedded in the picture by the device that took it.

    Concerning the uninvited appearance of the app: That seems to be a bug experienced by many people with the management of Universal app processes. For some, it's caused by a certain version of DisplayFusion.

  3. photo app - How can I do a slideshow in an album? I only see the slideshow option outside of albums.

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.


    • Are you referring to the slide show option in the photo app?
    I suggest you to follow the below steps for the slideshow option and check if it helps.


    • Open the “Photo App”

    • Go to any three options “Collection”, “Albums” and “Folders”.

    • Click on any “Photo” and press the key “F5” it will launch slide show.

    Hope this information is helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.
