  1. Changing default Location for Picture Storage on Windows Photo App


    For uploading pictures from my phone to computer the windows app does to things:


    First, it always puts the photos into my video folder.

    Second, with each import it automatically generates a new folder (sometimes though I am only importing one picture)


    Is there a way to manually change where it imports photos to on my computer? Also, can I tell it to stop generating new folders each time?

    :)

  2. Changing the default storage designation for the Microsoft Windows Store and various apps.

    Hi Isaac,

    The default storage location for the Windows store and apps is in system location where Windows is stored (This PC-> C drive), if you want to change the default location of the apps then I suggest you to follow the below steps to change the settings
    and check if it helps.

    • Open Settings and click on the System icon.
    • Click on Storage on the left side, on the right side under
      Save locations, select the drive to where you want your
      documents
      , music, pictures, and/or
      videos
      to be saved to by default.
    • Click/tap on Apply.

    The above settings option is available only from the Windows version (10586), I suggest you to check in which version of Windows build in installed on your computer.

    Please get back to us with an update on this issue, we will be happy to assist you further.

    Thank you

    change windows phone app storage location (Win 8.1)

    I installed Win 8.1 and noticed that the Windows Phone App now stores all photos on the default drive (cChanging default Location for Picture Storage on Windows Photo App :), In Win 8, I had configured the Windows Phone App to store the photos on my drive dedicated to data (dChanging default Location for Picture Storage on Windows Photo App :). The ability to change the storage location
    seems to have gone away and the only option is to either turn on automatic import or turn it off.

    Any suggestions on how to change the default storage location?
