    duplicate desktop pictures


    I have a number of pictures on my desktop. When I open a particular picture, I noticed all the other pictures on my desktop are included with the picture I just opened. If I try to delete the unwanted pictures form this file, they get deleted from there orginal file. In short, all pictures on my desktop include all the other pictures showing on my desktop. I don't have a clue. Even if I put a picture card from my camera into the pc, it does the same thing.

    :)

  2. Getting duplicate pictures

    Dear Sir,



    Thanks for your kind response. I don't take much time to read those information in detail. There are Nokia APPs available, that is the "Nokia Storyteller Beta". I found it can list those pictures without duplication. The only problem is it can't
    collect those pictures such as snapshot photos from my phone's screen. So I wish it could solve the issue soon. Some suggestion and wish.



    Have great weekends,

  3. issue with deleting duplicate Desktop folder

    Howdy folks!

    I am new to tenforums, having my normal residence at sevenforums. But I'm attempting to help my wife with her fairly new (June) Asus Tuf laptop with Win10 Pro Version 1909 Build 18363.1256, AMD Ryzen7, 16GB RAM

    She somehow ended up with 2 Desktop folders showing under ThisPC and no Pictures folder. I ran the program listed in the tutorial in this forum
    ( Add or Remove Folders from This PC in Windows 10)

    to merge the 2 Desktop folders. Now it shows only 1 in ThisPC and still 2 in Users\ebeet (my wife initial and part of last name).

    The icons for the 2 in her Users folder both correctly show a computer screen and in properties says Desktop. The 1 listed under ThisPC has a Pictures icon although in Properties on General Tab it says Desktop. But when you go to Location Tab it says for Target location C:\Users\ebeet\Pictures.

    So the Regedit file removed the duplicate listing in the File Tree but things aren't right. Trying to change the location in Properties didn't work.

    I've attached a snip to show both folders.

    Any suggestions on a solution would be helpful, and thanks in advance! happy New Year to ya!
    Michael

    Duplicate pictures

    Hi Arlene

    Open Windows File Explorer

    On the left, choose Pictures

    Find some of those duplicates, have the file names been appended with (1), (2) . . etc?

    If so, in your Pictures library folder at the top right search for this criteria:

    name:~"*)*"

    That should list all duplicate image files in that folder

    Copy all those out into another folder that is not in your pictures library folder until you are sure all duplicates have been removed and the originals remain, then you can delete those duplicates files
