    File Explorer Photo Organization vs Photo App Organization


    In File Explorer, I have put my photos in folders according to the subject.


    Do I have to do this all over again in the Photos app for Windows 10, in order to get the folder contents from Explorer into albums in the Photos app?


    Also, any recommendations for an affordable but useful app or tool to keep all of my photos in Windows and the Photo app organized?

    :)

    Hi, if you can use a PC at 84, you're doing well!

    If you know where your various photos are, you can find them and move them to appropriately named folders in Pictures.

    Here I have my source folder on the left, Pictures open on the right.

    I've right clicked a photo, held the button down, and dragged to folder Uplay on the right. I can now let go of the button and click 'copy' or 'move'.

    If I want, I could select multiple files in the left window and do the same.
    (left click empty space and drag to select multiple files, or left click, say, the top file in a list, scroll down and SHIFT + left click to select a range).

    That's one way. Another is to copy and paste them (CTRL C, CTRL V, or CTRL X, CTRL V to move them).

    If you want to easily find, for example, all jpg files on your PC to find any left over photos, a free tool like Everything by void tools or Locate32 helps- scans all your files once, then type jpg and all will be listed:

    organizing photos

    Hello Jacqueline,

    I'd like to know more about this concern. To get started, I'd like to clarify if you're trying to organize your iPhone 7's photos through the Windows 10 File Explorer. If yes, you may organize photos by date by opening the iPhone 7 folder on the File Explorer.
    Next is to right click on the empty field, and then click Sort by then select Date modified.

    We'll keep an eye out for your response.
